The Heartland Association of Fairs, Festivals and Events (HAFFE) was founded in 2019 with the goal of assisting regional fairs, festivals, events and associates by sharing information, ideas and practices that assist in promoting events and growing attendance. HAFFE also helps to connect those looking for talent with quality entertainment for events. ANY fair, festival, event, or individual from the Dakotas or surrounding region is eligible for membership, with associate membership open to any appropriate support business or organization.
The Inaugural Heartland Association of Fairs, Festivals & Events Convention to be held in-person November 2020 was canceled. The Board of Directors put together an educational series meeting monthly as an alternative value to our members. Follow the link to learn more about the series.
Any fair, festival, event, associate or individual may become a member of the Heartland Association of Fairs, Festivals and Events! Members will be listed in the membership directory that will be handed out at our annual convention, as well as displayed on our website, allowing for additional exposure to help reach individual goals. Members will also receive a wealth of information that will help in generating new ideas to enhance future events. We invite you to apply for HAFFE membership, as well as view information on our current members.
