    we are hoping to have trailer parking at the National Guard parking lot which is about 1/4 mile up the road on Old Highway 20.
    We are not naive to the fact that trailers will be brought into the Dubuque area....
    but we just dont want them on site.

    while some hotels are selling out - there are still quite few that have rooms
    Best Western Plus
    563-557-8000
    A full service hotel and has won the top award for Best Western hotels in Iowa – very nice place.
    MainStay Suites - only has smoking rooms available
    563-557-7829
    2 miles from the fairgrounds.
    Country Inn & Suites
    (563) 583-2500
    Next to Mainstay Suites -Harley Davidson; next to Carlson O’Kelly’s & Applebee’s
    Holiday Inn Express
    Dubuque, IA
    563-556-4600

    Please mention the Torque Fest when calling these hotels - we are trying to get free rooms for some volunteers - If YOU want to volunteer - please go to the site and submit your info.
    If you are willing to contribute 20 hours for the weekend (yes 10 hours each day) then we will try our best to comp you a room.
    If you can only give a couple of hours of time - then you still get free entry, free shirt and you help the show run smoother.

    20 bands 20 bucks, dirt track racing, pin up contest, indoor vendors, art show, swap meet, oh yeah and vintage hot rods. Is this worth going to? Is it worth the time off of work and the gas money? What do you think? Pay up sucka, be there.
