Our Community

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 presentation for Citizen of the Year and Business of the Year. 

Halloween Party

Dress up your ghosts and goblins and bring them for a day filled with family fun! The day typically begins with a breakfast by the local Lions Club. Past events have included a pumpking carving/decorating contest, free kids games, pedal pull, youth dance, costume contests, video game contest, a dinner and an adult dance. Our community loves Halloween!

Santa Day

Halstad EDA volunteers graciously invite Santa to Halstad each year to celebrate a fun day of holiday cheer! Santa has 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.
