Join the fun on Facebook

Normally, we would be gathering for a day packed with fun activities for the whole family in celebration of Lenexa’s history and heritage as the "Spinach Capital of the World" in the 1930s. Since it is not safe to gather in large crowds this year, we have come up with a fun new way to celebrate with the Virtual Spinach Festival. Activities include:

  • Spinach recipes and cooking
  • History and trivia quizzes
  • Old-fashioned games/challenges (participants eligible for prize drawings)
  • Craft/antique vendors (Connect on your own with the vendors who were planning to be at the festival.)
Follow the Lenexa Virtual Spinach Festival event page on Facebook for details about how you can participate.  

Also, check out beautiful Sar-Ko-Par Trails Park (location of the Spinach Festival in normal times) on your own and enjoy the unique playgrounds, fishing in the pond, picnic spaces, trails, the Legler Barn Museum and much more!
