Hoopskirt and Haber-DASH
5K Fun Run

Saturday, August 27, 2022 8AM

$30 to participate

Race back to the 19th century in the Hoopskirt and Haber-Dash. This is a 5K fun run where you can dress like you just stepped out of a haberdashery in hat and tie, or that you just made your debut in the biggest hoopskirt you can find! The course is a mostly flat course in Abraham Lincoln’s Springfield, through Enos Park neighborhood, north to Lincoln Park, and back down again. After the run, stick around for a musical performance by the 10th Illinois Cavalry Regiment band and try your hand at playing 19th century cricket.


Fun costuming is encouraged, with a prize for the best dressed of the bunch. 

Dogs are welcome at the race (not inside the museum)! 

A race shirt is included in the registration price. Medals will be awarded to winners.


Murder Mystery Auditions

Friday, August 19 5-6:30PM
Saturday, August 20 10-11:30AM

It's that time of year again! We are holding auditions for our annual murder mystery dinner theatre and are looking for 6 suspects, 1 detective, and 1 victim to round out our cast of "An Un-Eco-Friendly Death".


The setting is in 1971 at a public meeting about the possibility of the expansion of a plastics factory. EverGreen, a not-for-profit protecting trees, is rumored to attend and protest at the meeting, so there is tension in the air. That tension snaps when the EverGreen regional director is murdered! 

More information about the parts will be up soon, so check back for more information. The performances will be October 21-23.
