SPAM® Festival accepting vendors

Mark your calendar for the 10th annual City of Shady Cove SPAM® Festival.  Throughout the years, festivals have always been a great way of bringing people together…and also play an important part of building a community.  The City of Shady Cove SPAM® Festival is sponsored by the SPAM® Festival Committee and the Upper Rogue Regional Tourism Alliance in cooperation with the City of Shady Cove.

The history of SPAM® dates back to 1937, and was a cultural icon in the 40s.  During World War II, sales of Spam® soared. In part because it requires no refrigeration, Spam® was perfect for the military and became a standard K-ration for U.S. soldiers.

Today, you can visit the SPAM® Museum at 1937 SPAM Boulevard, Austin, Minnesota and also go the official Website at:  Shady Cove has been known for one-day of celebrating this tradition, along with many other cities across the USA.
