During the holiday season, the Quad Cities has many performances to get you into the holiday spirit. From theatre productions, The Nutcracker, and concerts, you won’t want to miss the festive presentations.
Recently I had the pleasure of attending the CAA Murder Mystery Fundraiser held at the River Music Experience in downtown Davenport. The CAA, or Creative Arts Academy of the Quad Cites, invited The Murder Mystery Co. to put on a 1950s theme evening for our community for a great cause.
Over 28 years ago a group of professional local artists decided that the Quad Cities needed an art fair run by artists with the interests of the participating artists in mind. That was the birth of Riverssance Festival of Fine Art. Since its inception, Riverssance has been bringing the finest of local and national artists and artisans to the area each year.
Located in the historic Village of East Davenport in Davenport, Iowa, the art fair is held annually the 3rd full weekend in September (Sept. 19-20) in Lindsay Park on the top of a tree-lined hill which overlooks the scenic Mississippi River.
