It’s Fair Time- Come See us at the Mississippi Valley Fair!

The Mississippi Valley Fair started Tuesday in Davenport, Iowa – and we will be there serving your Machine Shed favorites, and some food with a fair twist all week! Come try the Bacon Wrapped Meatloaf, Bacon and Pulled Pork Nachos – or a Walking Pot Roast!

It is “aerobatics, informative programs and hands-on workshops, diverse aircraft spanning all eras of flight, concerts to keep you rockin’ into the night, and much, much more.” The Machine Shed is serving up some of your favorite dishes in their Hanger and Ultralight Cafe. Come check out the airshows and activities, and stop by and see us if you are in the area!
