As both a community service and individual development organization, the Jaycees of the Quad Cities host multiple events throughout the year to serve the community while giving our chapter members opportunities to grow. You can get involved in so many ways, from helping with set up/tear down, to being a member on an event planning committee, or even volunteering as a non-Jaycee. Check out what we do and reach out to get active with us!
After the first Bridal Expo in 1985, the Jaycees of the Quad Cities Bridal Expo continues to uphold the tradition of excellence. The Bridal Expo is projected to be the largest bridal fair in the Quad City area. Over 160 vendors participate in the expo and nearly a thousand brides attend to plan their own dream wedding! The amazing event raises nearly $100,000 for the Jaycees mission to serve the Quad Cities community and Jaycees chapter.
In its inaugural year, Bar-B-QC will include wonderful barbecue from many vendors where they will compete in friendly competition. Local personalities will help with judging the competition along with a people’s choice winner that the public can vote for. Premier tasting of craft beers from local brewers.

All proceeds from Bar-B-QC are donated directly back to the community throughout the year.
