Get your grove on! Kick back with your friends and neighbors in the Museum’s backyard, historic Marvin Grove, for an artful celebration of the autumnal equinox, the last day of summer and first day of fall. Wander among the trees and follow your sense of wonder to enjoy games, performances, demonstrations, and hands-on opportunities to explore nature, culture, and the character of our communities. Free and fun for all ages. Pack a picnic or purchase snacks from food trucks. Backyard Bash brings together the following partners and artists: ADEKU, Nazanin Amiri, Bad Alaskan, BLACK Lawrence, City Play Corps, The Commons, Friends of Lawrence Area Trails, Mary Kirkendoll, KU Field Ecology students, KU Jazz Combo, KU Museum Education students, KU Natural History Museum, KU Print Club, KU Visual Art Education students, Last Carnival, Lawrence Public Library, Monarch Watch, Natural Grocers, Anoosha Redd and Geeta Tiwari, Spencer Research Library, Student Union Activities, Juniper Tangpuz, and Watkins Museum of History.
