The Halstad Economic Development Authority (EDA) collaborates with several other community groups to celebrate our community. We know a community is not made within the city limits, so we encourage all farm families and neighboring communities to be involved in our activities with us as well. We pride ourselves on making things happen in Halstad!

Spring Dinner
The Halstad EDA Spring Dinner is held each spring to celebrate the community and award those who are working hard to ensure our community thrives. This event is held at the LRC, with a meal, entertainment, the Mayor's State of the City address, and award presentations for Citizen of the Year and Business of the Year. This is a great opportunity to gather our community and celebrate our accomplishments. Join us next year!

Halloween Party
Dress up your ghosts and goblins and bring them for a day filled with family fun! The event began in 2009, and has steadily grown since then. Our community loves Halloween! The day typically begins with a breakfast by the local Lions Club. Other events include a pumpkin contest, free kids games, pedal pull, youth dance, costume contests, a dinner and an adult dance.

Santa Day
Halstad EDA volunteers graciously invite Santa to Halstad each year to celebrate a fun day of holiday cheer! Santa saves just enough time to allow each child to visit about their year. He encourages the kids to spend the morning enjoying the Lions' famous Pancake Breakfast and sends them on their way with a bag of treats. Santa day has been a tradition in Halstad for over three decades.  

Business Open Houses
The Halstad EDA invites all businesses to take part in the Business Open House Day.  This allows each business to show appreciation to the customers with some goodies, coffee and great conversation.  Click here for the 2019 Business Open Houses.
