• RIVERTOWN DAYS
    July 21 - 23, 2017

    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, kids entertainment and Saturday night fireworks.  Live music will fill our historic downtown at the new Rotary Pavilion in Levee Park and the Hastings RiverWalk will provide perfect viewing of the Twin Cities Power Boat races.  Don’t forget about the craft fair!  Over 80 local craft vendors display their work on the historic grounds at LeDuc Estate.
