10 Fun Things To Do Week of June 14th: Paint Parties, Live Music, Craft Fairs and MORE!
QuadCities.com proudly presents FUN10, a list of the top 10 things to do in the Quad Cities this week, and every week! Every Sunday, we’ll drop a new FUN10, to give you a head start on your week and a heads up on what’s going on over the coming seven days. Check out FUN10 every Sunday for the details on ten awesome events happening around town. It’s a cool read, and a great way to get started planning your entertainment for the week.
As the current health situation in our country continues to force the cancellation of so many regularly scheduled events in the Quad Cities, we are once again focusing this week’s edition of Fun10QC on fun entertainment you can enjoy in the safety of your own home or while practicing safe ‘social distancing’ as states begin the process of opening back up (with restrictions, of course).
So what’s on the FUN10 for this week? Read on …

Make plans to stop out at The Tangled Wood (3636 Tanglewood Road Bettendorf) this Saturday Jun 20 for live music from Have Your Cake! The tunes will kick-off at 7 p.m.
From Have Your Cake on Facebook:
“Despite Covid, We are playing this show because it is a beautiful and large outdoor venue with plenty of room. The success of these kinds of activities is dependent on public safety. Please be mindful that many people are at risk of being severely affected and just because you may be healthy does not mean you’re not unwittingly exposing others.
The Tangled Wood has lots of outdoor seating and I’ve observed their staff are wearing protective gear in order to serve you outdoors to minimize the need to travel to the bar. It’s not a bad idea to bring your own chairs or blanket to sit on their spacious lawn as well.”
