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 history of the SPAMŪ products dates back to 1937, and was a
culture icon in the 40's. During World War II, sales of SPAMŪ
luncheon meat soared. In part because it requires no refrigeration, SPAMŪ
products were perfect for the military and became a standard K-ration for U.S.
Today, you can visit the SPAMŪ Museum at 1101 N. Main Street,
Austin, Minnesota and also go to the office Website at: www.spam.com.
Shady Cove has been known for one-day of celebrating this tradition,
along with many other cities across the USA.
Our event is comprised of all volunteers. Our mission is to
give back to the community youth groups and for 4 years now, we have
been able to do this. Last year, we gave back to 3 local youth
groups from a portion of our net proceeds. If you would like to
volunteer, we would love to have you.
