Welcome To Our Host!

KCCG is excited to welcome local artist Kadesh Flow back to the Beanstalk as our host for Gardens at Sunset 2022. He’ll be joined on our stages throughout the evening by some of Kansas City’s many dedicated garden and orchard leaders, ready to share stories of all of the wonderful food and community that’s being grown all across the metro!

“A propulsive emcee, a bold songwriter, a skilled trombonist, an auspicious producer and an enterprising artist.”

Program Stations & Pollinator Plant Raffle

Learn about all of KCCG’s work in the community by visiting our three program stations:

  • Schoolyard Gardens & Beanstalk Children’s Garden (located in Herb Garden)
  • Individual & Family Gardens (located in front of the Gourd House in the Beanstalk Garden)
  • Community Partner Gardens & Giving Grove Orchards (located under the large pergola in the Orchard)

At each, you’ll have a chance to visit with KCCG staff and garden volunteers from across the city. You’ll also learn how you can support their work by making a Fund-A-Need gift.

As an added bonus, get your passport stamped at all three stations and enter our free raffle for a chance to win one of two Pollinator Garden Starter Packs. Drawings will be held at 7 p.m. and 8 p.m. Must be present to win.

Silent Auction

We love locally made goods almost as much as we love locally grown food. This year’s Silent Auction features all things “Kansas City,” from staycation packages and “only in KC” experiences to unique, locally-made merchandise. Items are displayed throughout the garden and orchard, and can also be viewed from the convenience of your phone with our mobile bidding app.

All bidding for the Silent Auction will be done from your smartphone. Be sure to bring your phone charged and ready! If you need assistance in setting up your phone or placing bids, volunteers will be available at the check in area to help.

You can even join in the fun from home! Watch for an instructional email or check back here the week of the event for instructions to register and bid from your phone.
