Have you heard about Quinlan Court? That's the new outdoor space in downtown Davenport...basically where the President Casino boat used to be docked. It’s designed as a multi-purpose, flexible outdoor event space along the Mississippi River. The rectangular planters are actually meant for seating...and the space will accommodate tents, food trucks and even has electricity. The grand opening is happeningt tomorrow.
Part of the celebration will include the first-ever Mercado on the River. Normally, the festival market (Mercado on Fifth) is held on Friday evenings in Moline. Now, Mercado en el Rio (market on the River...see, I DID pay attention in Spanish class at Davenport Central) will be held on select Saturdays in Davenport throughout the summer.
The grand opening of Quinlan Court starts Saturday at 5 p-m. The Mercado on the River runs from 5 to 9 p-m.
