Country’s Jason Aldean to Headline August Mississippi Valley Fair

Country star Jason Aldean will kick off the planned return of the Mississippi Valley Fair on Tuesday, Aug. 3, 2021. Last year, the 101-year-tradition canceled altogether due to Covid-19. Before that, the fair announced no large grandstand concerts in 2020, and canceling of the big concerts previously scheduled, including Keith Urban and Pitbull. It planned to program local bands in the grandstand, which has a seating capacity of 6,000. While Keith Urban has not been rescheduled for this year, he did reschedule his canceled 2020 Iowa State Fair Grandstand concert, for Saturday, Aug. 21, 2021 in... Read More

Will Quad-Cities Covid-19 Cases Be Spiking In Two Weeks?

I’m not great at predicting the stock market. I can’t say I’ve been especially adept at picking lottery numbers. But I’m going to go out on a limb and say that Iowa Quad-Cities covid numbers, and probably statewide numbers as well, are going to see a rise in 10-14 days. Over the weekend, my social media feed was flooded with pictures of people at the Mississippi Valley Fairgrounds, downtown Davenport, the Village of East Davenport, and really all over, enjoying the good weather and the premature St. Patrick’s Day celebrations. What did all of those pictures have in... Read More
