Welcome To The Bix Beiderbecke Memorial Society

2018 Bix Festival - Aug. 2 - 4

We’re planning on the next festival to again be at the Rhythm City Casino Resort in north Davenport.  We received many compliments on the acoustical “Event Center” for our concerts. It also has 3 restaurants, free parking (including valet), and will again be our host hotel and a major sponsor.  It is also very close to many shopping & other dining options.

Ticket information is on the FESTIVAL page.

Host Hotel Festival Reservations

The festival will be held in the “Events Center” (separate from the casino). There are a limited number of rooms in the Bix “Block” at the Rhythm City Casino Resort — if calling, ask for a room for the "Bix Fest.”

You can make reservations at the RCCR by calling 1-844-852-4386 or 563-328-8000.

The Bix Society is always looking for volunteers to help stage the festival, the Birthday Bash, and other events.  If you’re interested, please email your name & contact information to info@bixsociety.org any time of the year.

If you have a specific talent or inclination to help in a certain area (like "sales experience" for our Souvenir tables), please note that, as well.
