It can be a dummy subject in some contexts; but not, as far as I can think, where the statement is about the existence of something.

Here, it would have to refer to something. "... if it will be a quiz ... " only makes sense if we already know what "it" refers to, eg "I know that you hold a social event every night of the week. Would you let me know if it will be a quiz on ... "

So you need "if there will be" in your request.
