After much planning and discussion, the VIVA Quad Cities Committee, the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) organization, and other partnering organizations have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 VIVA Quad Cities Fiesta due to the uncertainty surrounding Covid-19.
The VIVA Quad Cities Fiesta was scheduled for September 12, 2020. The VIVA QC Fiesta was started in 1993 as an opportunity to highlight the rich culture and positive contributions of the Hispanic community, while providing college scholarships to any eligible Quad City area student.
While this year’s Fiesta has been cancelled, those students who received scholarships for the 2020/2021 academic year will still be distributed. VIVA Quad Cities takes great pride in distributing 100% of our profits to our college scholarship fund. Our commitment to provide annual college scholarships will continue as we look for alternative ways to raise money.
If you would like to help our local youth and contribute to next year’s scholarship fund, please contact us at vivaquadcities.com/contact/. Monies raised by VIVA Quad Cities are matched through our national affiliation with the LULAC organization.

VIVA Quad Cities is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that celebrates the vibrant Hispanic culture in the Quad Cities while raising funds for college scholarships.
