  • Greetings from the Hastings Chamber of Commerce, Organizers of Hastings Rivertown Days!
    The Rivertown Days committee is excited to move forward with hopeful hearts, open eyes and caution in preparation for the 2021 Hastings Rivertown Days event. This past year has left us all wishing we had a crystal ball, but absent of such certainty, we are working through several scenarios to produce a safe and successful event.  

    Please mark your calendar for July 16 – 18th, 2021 as a comeback year for Hastings Rivertown Days!
    This is the perfect opportunity to make some big changes, and we hope the Hastings community as a whole will embrace and help support this long standing event. Not knowing what the future will hold in 3 months, there are a few decision that have been made regarding event activities.
    • Expect something new! With a full year to reflect, the committee is ready and willing to shake things up. There will be
      • Multiple stages of live music! Adding stages allows attendees to spread out and find the type of music they like. Come down to 2nd Street and Levee Park for a chance to listen to 15 + bands, all local MN talent.
      • 50+ Arts & Crafts vendors! The RTD Craft Fair will return to Jaycee Park, set right along the Mississippi River.
      • A classic car show! Classic cars will fill Hastings historic downtown Sunday from 11 - 4 p.m.
      • Events around town! Check out a petting zoo, kids carnival, tent dance and more.
    • Know that our team will closely follow the guidance of health experts. We’ll continue to keep our partners, sponsors and community informed along the way. 
    • Given the tight timeline and uncertainty of what July will bring, the Rivertown Days parade will not be part of this year’s event however, area businesses will have the opportunity and support of the city to host their own Rivertown Days promotional event! Applications will be posted soon.
