Don’t miss the last Second Saturday celebration in Muscatine, this weekend!

Second Saturday is a once a month arts and music street fest to be held on 2nd Street between Cedar and Pine the second Saturday of every month from June to October. This Saturday Oct 13 marks the last of the season!

This event includes both food and non-food vendors set up in the parking spaces along 2nd Street, allowing pedestrians to walk on the sidewalk in front of the storefronts as well as in the center of the street.

In celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month LULAC Muscatine is bringing out The Quad Cities Ballet Folklorico to the Muscatine Second Saturday festival this Saturday. This will take place in front of Guadalajara Mexican Restaurant (208 E 2nd St. Muscatine) at 5 p.m. The Quad Cities Ballet Folklorico (QCBF) is a non-profit organization that teaches the Mexican culture to the community through the art form of dance.
