Seegmiller Farm Harvest Festival and Turkey Trot to collect food for Utah Food Bank
Go outside, get some exercise and help feed the hungry during the Seegmiller Farm Harvest Festival and Turkey Trot, Nov. 16 at 9:30 a.m. at Hela Seegmiller Historical Farm (2592 South 3000 East).
This fun run 5K is geared to generate food for the Utah Food Bank.
The entry fee is $5 plus three cans of food. Kids 12 and under are free with a three-can donation.
“There are so many reasons to participate in the Turkey Trot. You can enjoy our awesome Fall temperatures in a friendly environment and at the same time help feed those in need by bringing canned food items,” said Michelle Graves, Deputy Director of Arts and Events for the City of St. George.
“Last year we collected 1,361 pounds of food. Let’s surpass that amount this year.”
The Harvest Festival will take place following the race at about 10:30 a.m.
It will include pioneer games, pie-eating contests and prize giveaways — including frozen turkeys.
Registration is open through Nov. 15 at noon.
Runners can sign up here. This is not a timed race.

About Hela Seegmiller Historical Farm
Hela Seegmiller Historical Farm was built on land that was a workable farm owned by the Seegmiller Family. The family gifted the land to the City of St. George so that the city would build an historical farm with the look of the original homestead. There is a barn (pavilion) which holds 134 people and has 19 picnic tables in it — the perfect place to have a picnic, a family reunion, wedding or reception. There are goats, chickens and cows that live at the farm, along with an orchard and garden area. The eggs from the chickens and the fruit and vegetables harvested there are donated to Switchpoint.
