It’s a Rotarian favorite….our meeting at the Mississippi Valley Fair. Our longstanding Davenport Rotary tradition continues as we head to the Fair on preparation day, Monday, July 28th. We will meet in the Pavilion, right across from the horse barns on the West side of the grounds. Guests are welcome and encouraged to attend. Guests are $13 and children are free.
To avoid delays ROTARIANS NEED TO ENTER THE FAIR THRU THE GATE OFF LOCUST STREET RIGHT ACROSS FROM McDONALDS. Riefe's will cater lunch.
2014 will mark the 95th year for the Fair. Far from its humble beginnings in the early 1900's it has grown from a small county fair into a grand regional event, attracting more than 300,000 people during fair week and over 600,000 people annually making it one of the largest fairs in Iowa. The impressive grandstand line up for 2014 includes Eli Young Band, Lady Antebellum, Craig Morgan, Cheap Trick, Alan Jackson, and Jerrod Niemman.
