Rivertown Days is a fundraiser for the Hastings Area Chamber of Commerce & Tourism Bureau. The funds raised from the festival support the mission of the Chamber – to lead, promote and advocate for the Hastings area business community to reinforce a strong local economy. The money supports the efforts of the Tourism office – which markets Hastings as a destination. The combination of these efforts boosts the local economy, creates employment and infrastructure, sustains existing businesses and builds community pride.

While the Hastings Area Chamber of Commerce is the organization behind Rivertown Days, the credit should go to a wonderful league of VOLUNTEERS who care deeply about bringing attention to the community, sparking interest for future positive economic impacts. It’s funded by local business sponsors, organized & executed by local business volunteers. 

Cash only event.
