Welcome To The Bix Beiderbecke Memorial Society

2017 Bix Festival - Aug. 3 - 5

The 2017 Bix Festival has a new location! The brand new Rhythm City Casino Resort in north Davenport has a great room (“Event Center”) for our concerts, 3 restaurants, free parking (including valet), and is our host hotel and a major sponsor. It is also very close to many shopping & other dining options.


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.


You can make reservations at the RCCR by calling 1-844-852-4386 or 563-328-8000. 
The Bix Fest Group Rate can be as low as $109/night. For the online booking code, Go to: www.rhythmcitycasino.com
