Hastings Rivertown Days is a city wide summer festival that’s fun for the whole family! Jaycee Park set along side the mighty Mississippi River is jam packed with delicious food, carnival rides, a music stage, water shows on the river, carnival rides and Saturday night fireworks. Live music will fill our historic downtown as local Hastings bands play at the new Rotary Pavilion in Levee Park. Don’t forget about the craft fair! Over 70 local craft vendors display their work on the historic grounds at LeDuc Estate.
