Fortopia, a playful outdoor exhibition comprised of awe-inspiring forts, invites explorers of all ages to uncover Powell Gardens. This vibrant edition to summer in Kansas City encourages outdoor discovery and taps into the nostalgia of childhood fort building.
After opening a public request for proposals, a jury selected four new fort designs for inclusion in the 2023 exhibition. Designed to inspire outdoor play, Powell Gardens is excited for visitors to experience Fortopia’s wonder through the variety of creative perspectives represented in the chosen forts. This year’s fort designers include a team of preschool children, artists, landscape designers, architects, and more.
Fortopia opens May 25 and runs through September 4. Visit the Gardens many times to experience the forts in a different light throughout the changing seasons! Nestled on the East Lawn, visitors are encouraged to enjoy the Gardens in a new and playful way.
