Q Casino has truly shown that type of Mid-America hospitality by sponsoring not one, but two live performances for the H.O.G Rally attendees. In fact, Q Casino has gone above and beyond expectations of hospitality by opening up the concerts to be complimentary to anyone wanting to attend. The perfect ending, listening to live entertainment along the Mississippi River with your family, friends and the entire H.O.G. nation of riders. It can’t get better than this!”

Having played more than 600+ shows in the last 12 years, this band has perfected their live show into an experience you won’t find anywhere else.

Electric Shock has been perfecting the AC/DC show with a high energy performance, faithfully replicating AC/DC both musically and visually, proving they are the nations #1 AC/DC show!

The Mid-America H.O.G. Rally presents Hollywood Dubuque is making its way to Iowa in mid-summer July 21st – 24th, 2022. Rally attendees will be partaking in three activity-filled days featuring daily guided and self-guided rides, fun evening activities, movies, contests, specially priced attractions and dining offerings, and the enjoyment of riding the wide-open rolling plains of the Tri-State area. Stops for the riders will include sites that have made it on the big screen or have been a part of some Hollywood history such as the Surf Ballroom in Clear Lake, the American Pickers store in Clinton, and of course the iconic Field of Dreams movie site in Dyersville, IA.

As of the beginning of May, there are over 800 H.O.G. Rally attendees registered with an anticipated attendance of over 1000 enthusiasts of the world’s greatest motorcycles,

Harley Davidsons. Riders from 30 different states across the USA and Canada have already paid for their registrations.

Hopfauf added, “I would love to see as many locals and beyond enjoy the evening’s entertainment and share a “Thank you to the H.O.G. riders that came from all over the country to spend their time and money in Dubuque and the tri-state, and a HUGE thank you to Q Casino for their hospitality and generosity in providing the highest in professional entertainment free to all of us.” Dwight added, “I feel more than comfortable in saying that the H.O.G. Rally attendees truly, truly appreciate Q Casino’s gesture. With the rising costs of everything these days, including buying gas to ride to Dubuque, this evening’s entertainment memory is something the riders will leave with, and return back to our area to enjoy themselves again very soon. H.O.G. riders go and return to where they are always welcome, and Mid-America is always welcoming.”
