The warm summer breeze, sand in your feet, a drink of choice in your hand, and your voice is hoarse after singing every known lyric as the sound of music devours the arena. But that concert wasn’t the start of all the fun, it was the second part of an evening first spent eating the best of fair foods, previewing livestock and adorable animals, and spinning round and round on rides where your legs shook for several minutes after it ended.
This scenario could be anywhere, but nothing quite fits it like the annual Mississippi Valley Fair. It’s one of the times that almost everyone in the Quad Cities finds themselves in the same place. With 6 concerts and admission to the fair itself, the $55-$60 Fun Card proves to be a smart and money-savvy opportunity to have a week’s worth of fun and entertainment.
Remember to check the schedule each night, in order to know which artist is playing in the grandstand. It also allows you to see what other events, animals, shows during the day. and opportunities are going on at the same time. All shows begin at 8 P.M., with gates opening at 7 P.M. Tickets are available for purchase all week, but at a $60 price for
the fun card. Remember this includes general admission and entry to every single concert over the week of July 31st to August 5th. General admission to the fair is $5/day for children, ages 4-12, and $10/adults. Anyone under the age of 3 is allowed free admission at the fair gates!
You are not going to want to miss out on this yearly QC tradition!
