Known as the Quad-Cities’ biggest homecoming party, Street Fest, taking place on July 28-29, has been a signature event in the region for close to half of a century. Downtown Davenport Partnership, a division of the Quad Cities Chamber produces the yearly event while thousands of visitors are in the region for The Bix 7 Road Race. New this year, the 46th Annual Street Fest, presented by Cobham will feature an entire block dedicated to Ribfest!
