What is HNE?
Historic Northeast Events
Historic Northeast Events was originally formed by the NEKC Chamber of Commerce to be the Not-For-Profit agency and sister organization to administer the Historic Northeast Fall Festival.
It received its determination letter 3-15-2005. It managed the Fall Festival through 2007 and then decided to discontinue holding the community event. The board decided to keep the organization but change the name to better identify its role in the Historic Northeast community. On 12/1/2009 it officially became the Historic Northeast Events, a 501 C3 Not-For-Profit.
We have applied and received several grants for several Civic Leadership classes, a healthy food choice grant, a Banner grant, and acquired several land grant properties to enhance landscaping and creative place-making. HNE has hosted meetings, workshops, and seminars over the years.
HNE partners with not only the Northeast Kansas City Chamber of Commerce but also Jackson County, Independence Avenue Community Improvement District, the City of Kansas City Missouri, Northeast Arts KC, and others.
