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.
