2018 "Dirt(y) Dancing" Garden Party


Mark your calendars! The 14th annual Garden Party, hosted by the Friends of The Gardens, will be held on Friday evening, June 1, 2018. This event in The Gardens is designed for you to have fun and to raise money to support the Kansas State University Gardens. Projects to keep the K-State Gardens growing and beautiful require countless hours of manpower, and the proceeds from this yearly event help fund the interns who receive hands-on experience in all aspects of planning, maintaining and growing a public garden.

The theme this year is "Dirt(y) Dancing". As in previous years, it's an evening filled with food, drink, and music. There will also be a silent auction with garden themed items and some surprises. So, please plan to come and enjoy the evening on June 1. It will be memorable!

To purchase tickets ($100/person), become a sponsor, or ask questions contact the K-State Foundation at 785-532-6266.

The Friends of The Gardens is a volunteer organization that helps raise funds to sustain The Gardens' general operating expenses including garden development, funding student interns and on-going maintenance.
