Solar Eclipse Viewing

What you've all been waiting for.

SolFest is partnering with the Crane Trust to host an eclipse viewing in a location unlike any other. Located just a short drive from Hastings, the Crane Trust manages thousands of acres of historic prairie where you will have an unaltered view of the sky.

This one-of-a-kind viewing location features 2 minutes and 33 seconds of totality, which, by the way, is one of the longest periods of totality in the entire nation.
