Gigs in the Garden
October 11 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
An event every week that begins at 2:00 pm on Sunday, repeating until October 25, 2020
Central Bank and Central Trust present Gigs in the Garden, a free concert series at 2:00 p.m. on Sunday, September 20 and Sundays in October 2020 at the Peace through People Pavilion located within the beautiful Kay Cummins Finnie Dogwood Garden in the Springfield Botanical Gardens, 2400 S. Scenic Ave., Springfield, Mo.
Gigs in the Garden features a variety of international and local performance groups and offers community members an exciting way to enjoy the extraordinary park. Attendees are asked to bring their own lawn chairs and/or blankets for seating. In the case of inclement weather, the concerts will move inside the Springfield-Greene County Botanical Center.
The lineup for this series will be announced soon. Check back later for more information!
Gigs in the Garden is organized by Ric Mayer, maintainer of the Kickapoo Edge Prairie, and Linda Chorice, former Springfield Conservation Nature Center Manager. The series is managed by Friends of the Garden and Springfield Sister Cities Association in cooperation with the Springfield-Greene County Park Board.
Funding for the concert series is made possible through Central Bank and Central Trust’s sponsorship of the Dogwood Garden. Though the concerts are free to attend, donations are accepted to benefit and improve the Springfield Botanical Gardens.
The Peace through People Pavilion was constructed in late 2016 to encourage more cultural performances and community events in the Springfield Botanical Gardens. The Pavilion furthers the Friends of the Garden mission to bring people, nature, and gardens together as well as the Springfield Sister Cities Association mission of Peace through People.
