Rhubarb lovers from far and wide will gather at the Prairie Village Museum from noon to 3 p.m., Sunday, June 30, for the museum's first ever Rhubarb Festival.

A $3 donation will purchase six tastes of more than 20 rhubarb dishes, with an emphasis on desserts, pies and cakes. Hamburgers, hotdogs and chips will be offered for sale from noon until gone. All proceeds will go toward Old Main Exhibition Hall repairs.

Special museum admission rate for the festival is $5 for adults, with no charge for minor children or Geographical Center Historical Society members.

Plenteous rhubarb in Richard Davidson’s backyard inspired the Prairie Village Museum’s Rhubarb Festival to be held from noon to 3 p.m., June 30. Festival goers will sample all kinds of rhubarb treats.

Hosted by the "Friends of the Museum," the festival will take place, rain or shine, in the museum's Sandven Exhibition Hall. Rhubarb recipe books will be available for sale. All 29 of the museum's buildings will be open for touring until 5 p.m., and there will be live music and activities for kids.

"This is a great time to purchase a historical society membership," said Friends of the Museum president Pat Bye. Members receive free admission to the Rhubarb Festival, the Village Fair on Aug. 11, and receive discounts on other events, like the Marbles Tourney on July 16 and Museum Camp Aug. 5-11.

Regular admission to the museum is $7 for adults; $6 for seniors (65-plus); $3 for ages 7 to 17. Household memberships are $30; single memberships are $15.

Museum hours are 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday and from noon until 5 p.m. Sundays. Flea Market at the Museum is 4 to 7 p.m. Thursdays. For more information on these or other events, call 701-776-6414, email or visit
