Even though it's getting colder now, we can already look ahead to next summer and the 2023 Mississippi Valley Fair.

Today, Shawn Loter announced 4 of the 7 days and acts that will be playing the grandstage at the Mississippi Valley Fair.

Wait, 7 days?  Don't you mean 6 days?

Normally the Mississippi Valley Fair runs for six days in the first week of August.  But this year, there will be a special bonus concert on July 31.

If you remember the Thursday night of the 2022 MVF, you know that things didn't go according to plan.  The scheduled headliner of Jimmie Allen was canceled because his flight was so delayed that he couldn't make it to the Quad Cities in time.

Well this year, Jimmie will kick off the grandstand of the week of concerts.  Shawn Loter says that the Monday night show is a bonus show for all those with MVF Fun Cards.

Who has rocked the Mississippi Valley Fair lately?

The MVF has had some big names come through in the last few years.

In 2022 we saw the biggest crowd ever when Kid Rock opened the week.

In 2021, the fair rocked with Shinedown.

In 2020....we don't talk about 2020.  Anything in 2020.  Ever.

In 2019, the fair had a huge crowd for Nickelback.

In 2023, the MVF will rock Saturday night with Limp Bizkit.

Saturday, August 5 Limp Bizkit is going to roll into the Mississippi Valley Fair.

It will be Fred Durst, Wes Borland, John Otto, DJ Lethal, and Sam Rivers.  The crew that has been rocking together since 1997 when they first released Three Dollar Bill, Y'all will rock the Quad Cities.

The 16-time platinum nu-metal rockers will surely get the crowd going at the 2023 Mississippi Valley Fair.

Monday, July 31 - Jimmie Allen

What The Quad Cities Did For Fun in the 90's

Many times over the years, I'll be talking with friends about years gone by and I'll say "take me back".

Every generation goes through this, I assume. Looking back at a more simple time where responsibilities haven't set in and life seems fun. Opportunities are endless.

Let's go back to the 1990's to Wacky Waters, 50 Cent Beer night and revisit Mallards Mania!
