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!
Originally titled Bridal Expo, this wedding event began in 1985 and continues to uphold the tradition of excellence. The Wedding Expo is projected to be the largest wedding event in eastern Iowa. Over 100 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.

COMMUNITY AWARDS BANQUET
The Jaycees of the Quad Cities' Community Awards showcase individual excellence in leadership as demonstrated by outstanding initiative, impact of work, and inspiration of others. Help us honor area leaders under 40 for their contributions to service and recognize the accomplishments of our chapter and its members in the past year. This event features a catered sit down buffet with beverages.
TACO 'BOUT A NONPROFIT FAIR
This event welcomes numerous community non-profit organizations to meet and engage with people in the community and share opportunities to either get involved, take advantage of a program, or simply learn about what they do for our Quad City area. Come grab a beef taco dinner from Snoops (James Ramirez)! A cash bar will be available. $2 from every meal sold will go to the Jaycees to give back to the community.
