About This Activity

Leve for Farge! This means Live for Color in Norwegian. The 5K fun run/walk is a 'Run for the Arts' fundraising event that benefits the mission of the Bluff Country Artists Gallery in Spring Grove, Minnesota.  

The Gallery showcases the work of over 70 artists of the Bluff Country region of Southeast Minnesota.  The juried works of fine art featured at the Gallery provide diverse art experiences to our visitors. We offers special exhibits, studio classes and events that encourage artisitc excellence and educational opportunities. "A hidden jewel for the artists as well as the visitors and consumers."

The Leve for Farge course is run on hilly and scenic country gravel roads and through the streets of beautiful Spring Grove.  It is part of the city-wide Uff Da Fest celebration - an event that showcases our lovely city and provides a fun family event with food, quilts, games, music, heritage, and special events.
