Quad Cities – Experience Quad Cities (EQC) announces a community-wide contest for the 2013 East West Riverfest Event Guide Cover.

"After the success of the first East West Riverfest last September, the EQC Advisory Board wanted the 2013 Event Guide cover to reflect the cultural spirit of the event and to feature a local designer," said Jared Johnson, EQC Advisory Board member and Director of Marketing, Quad City Symphony Orchestra.

East West Riverfest—scheduled for September 6-22, 2013—is a celebration of the arts, culture and heritage offerings that thrive within the Quad Cities area. It is a collaboration of artists, performers, organizations, attractions, events, and businesses.
