An Annual Halstead Tradition for 122 Years!
History has recorded many great events since 1887 the first automobile, air travel, space exploration. Yet one thing has remained the same. For the past 121 years, an annual event has been held in Halstead celebrating the spirit and the people of our community.
The tradition continues in August with the 122nd Old Settlers festival featuring activities, games and fun. Entertainment will be provided with several bands taking the stage in Riverside Park. A Rod Run featuring classic cars and legendary motorcycles will be held in Scout Park. Mud volleyball, golf and horse shoe tournaments along with a 5K walk/run, pie eating contest and much more will be part of the three day celebration. The event will be highlighted by a spectacular fireworks display and the traditional Kiddie Parade and Grand Parade bringing many visitors to our community.
To maintain a reasonable charge for visitors and families, the cost of an Old Settlers button will again be $5.00 this year. Expenses for the celebration continue to escalate, however, and we need your help. Please consider a gift to Old Settlers to support this Halstead tradition.
Old Settlers is the longest continuous celebration in Harvey County. Thank you, in advance, for supporting this community event.
