Vintage Valentine Affair at Powell Gardens


Beautiful  schizanthus blooms in Powell Gardens' conservatory.

5-7 p.m. February 11, 2017

Celebrate love and enjoy the intoxicating display in our glass-topped conservatory during the Vintage Valentine Affair, a special evening of food and drink. Attendees will experience unique flavors of chocolate-infused creations made using produce and herbs from our Heartland Harvest Garden, as well as Kansas City local meats.

The special tasting menu is expertly paired with wines from Kansas City sommelier Hillary McCoy, who will explain the nuances of the wine selections and how each relates to its sweet or savory handcrafted partner. The chocolate sampling menu and wines will be supplemented with additional hors d'oeuvres and a cash bar.

All guests will receive a "secret powerful love potion" which can be consumed or worn. The potion is made from Powell Gardens ingredients and created by Barb Fetchenhier, our Garden Produce and Product Specialist.
