Mississippi Valley Fair Week is Here!

One of the most highly-anticipated weeks of summer in Eastern Iowa is officially here! That’s right, it’s Mississippi Valley Fair week!

The 2018 Mississippi Valley Fair takes place from Tuesday Jul 31 through Sunday Aug 5, at the fairgrounds located at 2815 West Locust Street Davenport. Horse shows, talent shows, kids karaoke contests, carnival rides, petting zoos and concerts only begin the list of the many activities you will find this year.

Do you already have your Fun Card? The Mississippi Valley Fair Fun Cards allow access to the fairgrounds every day and they are the only way you can enter the Grandstand for this year’s amazing performances.

Cards can be purchased online at, at any Hy-Vee store, select Great Southern Banks or at the Mississippi Valley Fairgrounds office between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. (Monday-Friday).
