Don’t Miss the Bandit County Fair – Tickets on Sale NOW!

Wednesday, March 25th, 2009

For those of you who go waaaay back, you may remember The Bandit County Fairs back in the day. An old barn out on Smith Valley Road, the notorious Pearl Street Brewery Grumman beer truck parked nearby with fresh beer on tap and of course the music fans…and lots of them. Oh the fun. Well that party lives on – BIGGER AND BETTER.

This year the barn has been replaced by a two day camp-out event at an impressive bar and campground, the Grumman has been replaced by a big tap trailer filled with kegs and kegs of the local favorite brew and the only thing different about the music is that there is more of it! The Bandit County Fair will be at Gunner’s Campground and Bar down in De Soto, Wisconsin. For those of you who have no idea where that is, just follow the River Road down towards Prairie Du Chien. You can’t miss it.

This year’s line-up is stacked with local favorites and out-of-towners. You won’t want to miss it. Tickets are on sale now at the Pearl Street Brewery. Stop down and get your tickets and enjoy a coldie. If you can’t make it, you can call ahead and order by phone as well.
