As we get closer to's really exciting to see events pop up on your news feed.  After a year of not being able to do anything just the thought of being with people is a little exciting.

The Dawn is a great jam band here in the Quad Cities and have put on a music festival for the past few years. Last year, of course, being the exception.

This year the plan is in place and I think everyone is optimistic.  July 10th, 2021 "The Dawn and On" Music Festival is going to be held at Schwiebert Park in Rock Island.

Dawn and On is a one-day festival held outside on the banks of the Rock River. In addition to a full-day of music on the river, Dawn and On will feature local food and craft vendors, a full bar including local craft beer and surprises throughout the day. Simply put, DAO is the Quad City’s best party of the summer.

At least, that what they did in 2019.  We'll have to wait and see what fun, food, music and surprises are in store for 2021.

Founded in 2015, Dawn and On is a family-friendly, homegrown music festival featuring the area’s best local and regional talent. From rock to jam to reggae to bluegrass, you’ll find all of our bands highly danceable and indescribably fun. Our goal is to bring all the magic of the multi-day music festival and condense into one highly affordable day right in your own backyard. In addition to the live music, DAO brings in some of the area’s most talented arts and craft vendors, a variety of delicious food and snacks, premium craft beer and a few surprises along the way. So grab your lawn chairs, hula hoops and fanny packs and experience the DAO experience for yourself. Trust us, you’ll be glad you did. See you on the River!
