EXPERIENCE QUAD CITIES
East West Riverfest was created through forming Experience Quad Cities in 2010, under the guidance of the Quad Cities Convention & Visitors Bureau. This grassroots, volunteer effort is managed by a volunteer advisory board coordinating the time, talent and offerings of more than 60 local arts, cultural and heritage organizations in order to collectively attract additional visitors, build audiences, and reinforce its mission with local supporters.
The Experience Quad Cities mission is to improve the quality of life in the Quad Cities region by advancing the importance of arts, cultural and heritage organizations.
