You asked.  The Mississippi Valley Fairgrounds listened.  Coming in 2022 a brand new craft beer and wine tent.  The tent will feature music, drinks, games and according to the MVF Facebook page, so much more.

Shawn Loter, General Manager of the Mississippi Valley Fair tells me the tent will be located across from the Expo Hall.  Which puts it roughly in this area.  Of course, you might have to explore a little, but that's the fun of the fair.  At least you now know roughly where to go.

Shawn says they are still working with vendors on which craft beers and wines will be available at the craft beer and wine tent, but if you are a consumer of either, you know there are no shortage of these.  Especially the craft beers in the Quad Cities.  With 17 in the QC alone, you should have plenty of options at the 2022 Mississippi Valley Fair.

Reaction from fairgoers is overwhelmingly positive.  With of course comments of "could be trouble" and "we've got our DD", people are ready for summer, the fair, and trying out the new craft beer and wine tent.

The 2022 Mississippi Valley Fair runs for 6 days from August 2-7th with all the drinks, food and live music including a grandstand which includes

  • August 2nd - Kid Rock
  • August 3rd - TBA
  • August 4th - Jimmie Allen
  • August 5th - Carly Pearce
  • August 6th - Brantly Gilbert
  • August 7th - Toby Keith

If you know a family that deserves a day at the fair, check out the "Fair Family of the Day" program here which will get one local family in with food, drinks, rides and more each day of the fair.
