Event Information


This event is being put on through the joint efforts of FrontRunner Events and Family Pathways.  This fundraiser benefits Family Pathways Youth Services programs and helps the organization to provide free, quality services to low-income, at-risk, and special needs youth in our communities.

Location of Event  – The Chisago Lakes Area is named after an Indian phrase, “Ki Chi Saga,” which means “fair & lovely waters.” The Swedish simply called it “The Big Lake,” as many of today’s area lake comprised one large lake.   The Chisago Lakes Area has a strong Swedish history making this a destination for visitors from our Sister Cities in Sweden.   But you don’t need to be Swedish to enjoy this vacation hot spot.  It is rich in history and recreation with a friendly hometown atmosphere! Whether you are looking for great shopping, eating, camping, entertainment or family events, you will find it here.

Ki-Chi-Saga Days is a great community celebration with activities for all ages.  Besides for a great running event, there’s music throughout the day on Saturday and Sunday with a great craft fair and food venders.  Fireworks highlight the event on Saturday evening!
