I don't know about you, but I'm craving a Mama's steak sandwich, Chuckie's tenderloin, a massive corndog, and a lemonade shake-up. Oh, and some awesome music on the grandstand stage at one of the biggest fairs in Eastern Iowa. I'm obviously talking about the 2023 Mississippi Valley Fair.

The Great One is just a few weeks away and with everyone talking about the new food vendors coming to the Iowa State Fair, I figured it only made sense to let you know what delicious food you can find at MVF 2023.

Your fair food cravings will soon be able to be satisfied but to make you crave all of that deep-fried food, here is the list of Mississippi Valley Fair food vendors coming to this year's fair.

2023 Mississippi Valley Fair Food Vendors

The 2023 Mississippi Valley Fair kicks off on Tuesday, August 1, 2023. There is a bonus concert on Monday, July 31st featuring grandstand acts Austin Snell and Tyler Farr.

Fun Cards are still on sale at all Iowa Kwik Star locations, Great Soutehr Banks, Quad City Hy-VEe stores (including Muscatine and Clinton), and at the Mississippi Valley Fair office until July 27th. Fun Cards are $110.

Besides the awesome grandstand acts, rides, and cold beer, we all love going to the Mississippi Valley Fair to eat the food. This year's fair will feature more than 50 food and beverage vendors. From tenderloins and steak sandwiches to grilled sweet corn and chicken on a stick, the Mississippi Valley Fair is going to smell like fried-food heaven for 6 straight days.

And I know you're excited about all of this fair food because when I asked you on social media "What is your favorite food AND dessert to get at the Mississippi Valley Fair?", you answered.

If you're wanting to get fair food for breakfast, lunch, or dinner but don't have a Fun Card, adults and children can get onto the fairgrounds for $5.00 from 7:00 a.m.-2:00 p.m. every day of the fair. Adults can pay $12.00 and children ages 4-12 are $5.00 after 2:00 p.m
