Join us at Powell Gardens for Under a Harvest Moon, a special al fresco dinner to benefit the Gardens, on Sunday, October 1, 2023. We return to the long tables under the eaves of the Missouri Barn with a meal to celebrate the season and raise necessary funds to ensure our future success.

While 2023 tickets may be closed, you can still have a profound impact on Powell Gardens!

The evening kicks off with a vibrant cocktail hour with live music followed by a beautiful four-course meal highlighting local and seasonal ingredients.

Gather with friends old and new as we share a memorable evening in support of Kansas City’s Botanical Garden. This year at our final Under a Harvest Moon, we celebrate our milestones thus far and all of those who have made an impact on our Gardens.
