Three people networking at a Heartland social event

VGM's Famous Hometown Hospitality.

It wouldn’t be Heartland without our famous community get-togethers. At our events this year, you’ll enjoy unbeatable Midwest hospitality, forge new friendships and connections, and of course, make memories that’ll last a lifetime.

But the fun doesn't end when the sun starts to set.

Grab a cold beer or soda and mingle at the iconic hog roast. You’ll enjoy mouthwatering pork cooked on site, then kick back and relax with live music and a dazzling 3D firework display over the Cedar River.

We’ll also be featuring community dinners again the very next day, giving you the opportunity to eat, drink, and socialize with your peers.

Close out your conference experience with a grand event at VGM's farm.  The Farewell at the Farm will be the perfect venue to wind down.
