Put on your dancing shoes, and head to Hastings for the 45th annual celebration of Rivertown Days, a three-day festival along the Mississippi River.

From July 19–21, festival-goers can enjoy the musical stylings of 20 artists across three stages on Second Street in historic downtown Hastings. “It’s been a long staple in the community,” says Kristy Barse, president of the Hastings Chamber of Commerce.

The good times will roll at Levee Park with the Rivertown Days Carnival, a mini-fairground complete with rides and games open Friday to Sunday. On Saturday, multiple family-friendly events will be held around town, including a petting zoo and Wiffle ball and pickleball tournaments. An arts and crafts fair will be held in Jaycee Park on Saturday and Sunday, where you can browse the creations of more than 100 vendors.

The festivities will continue with the classic car show on Sunday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. with a procession of dozens of retro automobiles making their way down Second Street.
