QC Flavor Fest
October 5th, 5pm – 9pm at Common Chord
Join us as we sample the best food & drinks made right here in the Quad Cities!
Taste the best the Quad Cities has to offer & vote on your “favorite”, all while raising funds to support music education programming for kids.
100% of the proceeds from “QC Flavor Fest” go directly to Common Chord’s education programs.
Tickets will be available in early July & are expected to go fast.
WHAT IS IT?
This inaugural premiere fundraising event will become a must-attend event for Quad Citizens each year. The concept is simple – to showcase & “sample” the best of our community to support Common Chord’s education programs.
The ticketed event will offer samplings from favorite restaurants & food trucks, local music talent, & an exciting silent & live auction of items.
100% of funds raised at QC Flavor Fest will directly fund Common Chord’s education programs, creating accessible & inclusive music experiences for youth to inspire a love of music.

WHAT DOES IT SUPPORT?
All year long, Common Chord provides a variety of educational and enrichment programs to area youth designed to provide access to musical experiences and build positive relationships.
InTune Music Mentorship program, provided to students at Project Renewal in Davenport, the MLK Center in Rock Island, and Boys & Girls Club in Moline. InTune employs professional musician mentors to share a love of music with the kids, build healthy mentoring relationships, develop stronger support networks for at-risk youth, and show positive paths forward in life.
Acoustic Music Clubs, a music enrichment program for youth and adults with disabilities that provides a fun musical experience. Provided in partnership with the Blackhawk Area Special Education Center, ARC of the Quad Cities, the Handicapped Development Center, and Empower House.
RiverCurrents, our flagship school program that teaches the history and evolution of American music along the Mississippi River. All Davenport 5th graders participate in this program, in addition to many other schools throughout the region.
Let’s Band Together instrument loan program, which refurbishes donated instruments and loans them for free to students interested in exploring music, ensuring that finances are not a barrier to any child.
