Come join us on Labor Day, September 3rd for a scenic 5K run/walk like no other! Your journey through the Frontier Culture Museum campus will provide a visual story of early immigrants and their American descendants. The 5K route winds past thatched cottages, log cabins, duck-laden ponds, and historic livestock. You'll see traditional rural buildings from England, Germany, Ireland, West Africa, and America.
After the event join us for an awards ceremony and the Labor Day Fair at the Museum with live music, games, face painting, great food, and much more!

This event is to help raise funds for the Meredith Furr Summer Camp Scholarship Fund. During the past three summers, Mer’s Scholarship Fund was able to send over 60 deserving kids to camp!
Meredith Furr was a wonderful little girl and a member of our Frontier Culture Museum family. As many of you know, we lost Mer to cancer in 2016. To honor Mer, the Museum has created a scholarship program in her name. Mer spent 2 of her 10 summers as a camper here at the Museum, and we know she’d be happy to help other kids enjoy the same opportunity. Every year, the Frontier Culture Museum hosts hundreds of kids for week long summer camps. Camps are fun, educational, and offer the kind of adventure kids will long remember. Sadly, too many kids don’t experience our summer camp because their families can’t afford to send them. Every scholarship generated opens the world of the Frontier Culture Museum for a child to learn and grow.
