Dyersville Preparing for Thousands of MLB Game Visitors

Thousands of visitors will be pouring into Dyersville this summer for the Major League Baseball game at the Field of Dreams.

And the Dyersville Chamber is looking for area homes who are willing to host these temporary guests. Chamber Director Karla Thompson:

Major League Baseball announced last summer that the Chicago White Sox and New York Yankees will play in a special game at the famous Dyersville movie site on August 13th. And Thompson says they’re not exactly sure how many people that will bring to their small town of four thousand.

The challenge will be finding a place for thousands of visitors to stay.

And Thompson says the Chamber has already heard from residents in the Dyersville area who are interested in hosting guests.

The Airbnb meeting will be held tonight at 5:30 pm at the Dyersville Comfort Inn. A local resident who offers Airbnb will share information and insurance agents will be available to answer questions too. If you’re interested in attending, please RSVP to the Dyersville Chamber at 875-2311.
