UPDATE: Due to the expected bad weather, the Downtown Davenport Partnership is cancelling the We Love Downtown Davenport event scheduled for today, Thursday, May 26.


The Downtown Davenport Partnership (DDP) will host We Love Downtown Davenport, a free appreciation event, on Thursday, May 26, for residents, businesses and employees who live and work in the city’s core.

The event runs from 5-8 p.m. in Kaiserslautern Square, within the 100 block of East. 3rd Street, a news release says. The evening includes a live performance by Piso’s Cure. Lopiez Pizza, The RiverCenter and Zeke’s Island Café will have food available for purchase and there will be an on-site cash bar.

“There are over 2,000 residents and 250-plus businesses that bring people into downtown Davenport and we thought this new event would be a fun way to gather the community to celebrate the neighborhood,” said Kyle Carter, executive director of DDP. “What better way to activate the recently remodeled K-Square and kick off the festival season? Bring a friend.”

DDP, an affiliate of the Quad Cities Chamber, is leading place management and place-making initiatives in the downtown, working with property owners, business, developers, residents and the City of Davenport to ensure it remains a thriving destination for visitors and the QC region, the release says.
