Fair Week 2017

Fair Week is back again, and the buzz has been in the air since the close of last concert of the 2016 Mississippi Valley Fair. So put on your boots, join the crowd, indulge in some fried food and drinks, and holler to get ready for these summer nights.

Don’t forget the talent show, horse show, baking contests, rides, and more that just put the frost on the famous frozen fair lemonade. There’s nothing quite like it.

Remember to check the schedule online at the website or in the trusty fair pamphlet you can pick up at the fairgrounds. The grandstand schedule is listed below, and it’s full of talented musicians to put fair week on top. All shows begin at 8 P.M., with gates opening at 7 P.M. Tickets are available for purchase all week, at a $60 price for the fun card. This includes all concerts, and daily access to the fairgrounds.
