Culture

Q-Fest is adding a new area this year!  Join us as we start to infuse our local culture and diversity into this community event.  The Cultural Showcase invites individuals/groups to celebrate their heritage through various forms of creative expression (dance, music, education and art) and cultural cuisine. 

Check out “Let’s Explore Culture” by Jaycie Womack where kids can go on an educational journey by reading clues and then going to find the picture that matches the fact in this interactive art project.  This project is funded in part by the Illinois Arts Council and Arts Quincy members and funders.
