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

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.

The image will be used throughout East West Riverfest marketing and publicity. The winner will be contacted by June 15, 2013.

About East West Riverfest
During the first East West Riverfest, over 300 events took place on September 7-16, 2012, at over 60 various theaters, music venues, galleries, historic sites, parks, libraries, churches, and attractions on both sides of the river in the Quad Cities.

East West Riverfest was started by Experience Quad Cities as a way to collectively and effectively market to residents and visitors the existing events that happened over two weekends in September. Then the arts/culture/heritage organizations in the Quad Cities area enthusiastically joined the East West Riverfest movement and created numerous events to add to these ten days.

This festival is organized by Experience Quad Cities, an arts, culture, and heritage initiative that operates under the guidance of the Quad Cities Convention & Visitors Bureau.
