The 6th annual Stairs of Stillwater is a fun, family-friendly, 5K that benefits Youth Advantage. We are proud to partner with HarvestFest as its official 5K event.  Discover the hidden staircases that lead to downtown Stillwater from the hills that surround it. Enjoy beautiful views of the St. Croix River Valley from various angles as you conquer the staircases. Finish the walk in the heart of the HarvestFest activities including a giant pumpkin contest, pumpkin regatta race on the St. Croix River, pumpkin drop, and so much more!  Dress in comfortable walking shoes and in weather-appropriate attire. There will be refreshments at the finish line and we encourage you to stay for all of the fun HarvestFest activities! HarvestFest list of activities can be found at
