Join us at the Chase Home Museum for our annual June Jubilee.

We are celebrating traditions of play and games with chalk art, hopscotch, four square and giant lawn games for all to play. You can also learn to make an upcycled jump rope!

Artist Tracy Williams will be set up from 11am to 1pm to teach visitors about Polynesian arts and the traditional symbols on trickster hero Maui’s magical fish hook and help you create your own.

The museum will be open to explore and, as always, admission is FREE!


The Chase Home Museum of Utah Folk Arts is the only museum in the country dedicated to displaying a state-owned collection of contemporary folk art. It features objects made by living Utah artists from the state’s American Indian, rural, occupational and ethnic communities. The Museum offers a snapshot of Utah’s contemporary culture and heritage. The Chase Home, built more than 150 years ago in a traditional hall-and-parlor style from adobe bricks, is a fine example of 19th century folk art.


Mondays in the Park Concert Series is a free event out in front of the museum on Monday evenings in July and August. To learn more about the Mondays in the Park summer concert series, click HERE.
