• Rivertown Days come for the fun
  • Hastings Rivertown Days

    A community festival that features live music, family entertainment, carnival rides, a large arts and crafts fair, parade, fireworks and more!

    Celebrating 40 years!

    MARK YOU CALENDAR - Event dates are July 20th - 22nd, 2018

    The Hastings Area Chamber of Commerce and Rivertown Days committee are excited to announce some big changes for the 2018 Hastings’ Rivertown Days!  In an effort to showcase the entire riverfront, Rivertown Days will now host the entertainment stage, food trucks and family activities in Levee Park.  The carnival, historically set up south of the walking path in Jaycee Park, will be moving as well.  Festival rides and games will be placed in open land adjacent to Levee Park on both sides of Tyler Street.

    Have no fear.  Jaycee Park will still be an integral part of the event.  In fact, the area closest to the Mississippi River will become a new home for the Rivertown Days’ Arts & Crafts Fair.  Festival guests will be able to use the Hastings RiverWalk as an easy pathway between both event areas. 

    “Rivertown Days has been a fantastic showcase of Hastings for 40 years now. Our downtown is a wonderful entrance – given our natural and historic assets, plus our vibrant RiverWalk and Pavilion areas. This year’s events will allow residents and visitors to experience and celebrate it all with us. Then in doing so, to promote and see other attractions, businesses and events throughout all of Hastings – both during the festival and in future visits.”
                                    Aaron Rother, Board Chair, Hastings Area Chamber of Commerce & Tourism Bureau

    Additional information on entertainment and the music stage line up will be released in April.
