Screen shot 2014-03-26 at 12.43.06 AMStarting in June 2015, we are building a beautiful venue located on the great Mississippi River as a central location in Hastings for outdoor performances and gatherings. Click here for a video describing the location, and check out this short video retrospective showing the importance of the River Place Pavilion to our community.

It will host a variety of activities such as musical and theatrical performances, arts & craft shows, farmers markets, Rivertown Days events, outdoor worship services, youth activities and many others. All of which we believe will add a renewed sense of vibrancy to Hastings.

The River Place’s design was developed by local architect David L. Harris, who has generously donated all of his work in this project.

donateThe City of Hastings has agreed to donate all of the land and provide surrounding landscaping & bathroom facilities and future building maintenance – a total value of over $1 Million.  The Mayor and City Council are strongly supportive of this effort and have made it a centerpiece for what they are now calling the “Riverfront Renaissance.”
