chum submitted

All children are welcome to participate in this year’s Children’s Rhubarb Run the morning of Saturday, June 28. A variety of other children’s activities will take place throughout the festival, which lasts from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. at Leif Erickson Park. This year will honor Steve O’Neil.

Meet at the Rhubarb Festival Children’s Tent at 9 a.m. An announcement will be made for children to line up, with the run being split into age groups of 4-6 and 7-10. The Rhubarb Run, sponsored by the Duluth Running Company, allows children to run either 1/8 mile or 1/4 mile around Leif Erickson Park. Admission to the race is free, and everyone wins.

Face painting, coloring contests, bubbles, arts and crafts, and an on-the-hour story time by Big Red Bookshelf are just a few of the activities that will take place under the children’s tent. This year’s festival will also feature a photo booth as well as a full-day lineup of live performers. For the full stage show schedule, click here.

CHUM’s 10th anniversary festival will honor Steve O’Neil, a community leader who spent most of his life advocating for Duluth’s homeless. O’Neil started the Rhubarb Festival ten years ago, and he worked tirelessly to make the festival what it is today. CHUM will honor O’Neil, along with the community members and volunteers who make the festival possible, at this year’s event.

The Rhubarb Festival raises funds for CHUM’s programs and services, which provides basic needs services for homeless and marginalized members of the community. At the event, rhubarb goodies are sold, including hundreds of pies, muffins and crisps as well as rhubarb brats and burritos. A silent auction and several bucket raffles will also be available. Admission is free.
