About Pathways Gala
The Pathways Gala is a fundraising event supporting the one-of-a-kind educational programs at Gibbs Farm. As the Twin Cities’ premiere historic site dedicated to youth education, Gibbs Farm is known for its vibrant and unique field trips that strengthen students’ understanding of the past. Gibbs Farm’s hands-on, participatory learning model helps students immerse themselves in the history of Minnesota’s earliest inhabitants.

About Gibbs Farm

Now considered one of the Twin Cities’ premiere historic sites, Gibbs Farm serves more than 23,000 students and educators each year during field trips, summer camps, special events, and digital outreach programming. Gibbs Farm is recognized by educators across the region as one of the most important primary resources available for telling the story of Minnesota’s Indigenous cultures and early pioneers: a story many teachers require significant assistance to tell.
