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.





















 



Local events heading








  Today is Monday, Sept. 22, the 265th day of 2014. There are 100 days left in the year.

1864 -- 150 years ago: The board of education has granted Thursday as a holiday for the children, with the expectation that parents who desire to have their children attend the Scott County Fair will do so on that day and save irregularity the rest of the week.
1889 -- 125 years ago: The guard fence around the new cement walk at the Harper House has been removed. The blocks are diamond shape, alternating in black and white.
1914 -- 100 years ago: The Rev. R.B. Williams, former pastor of the First Methodist Church, Rock Island, was named superintendent of the Rock Island District.
1939 -- 75 years ago: Abnormally high temperatures and lack of rainfall in Illinois during the past week have speeded maturing of corn and soybean crops.
1964 -- 50 years ago: Installation of a new television system in St. Anthony's Hospital, which includes a closed circuit channel as well as the three regular Quad-Cities channels, has been completed and now is in operation.
1989 -- 25 years ago: When the new Moline High School was built in 1958, along with it were plans to construct a football field in the bowl near 34th Street on the campus. Wednesday afternoon, more than 30 years later, the Moline Board of Education Athletic Board sent the ball rolling toward the possible construction of that field by asking superintendent Richard Hennigan to take to the board of education a proposal to hire a consultant.
