Hastings Area Chamber of Commerce

Agri-Business Appreciation Barbecue

This event is held in November and recognizes area farmers and producers for their hard work and the important role agriculture plays in the Nebraska economy. Annually over 700 community members come together and enjoy live entertainment, good food, and raffles.

Each year this event raises money through the raffles and offers two scholarships that are given out to local seniors that will be going onto college in an agricultural field of study. The 2021 scholarship winners were:

  • Grant Turner of Doniphan-Trumbull
  • Jedd Whitmore of Superior

Congratulations to those students!
