Prairie Museum hosting 4th annual Rhubarb Festival

By Staff | Jun 17, 2016

Everything will be coming up rhubarb from noon to 4 p.m. Sunday, June 26, during the fourth annual Rhubarb Festival at Prairie Village Museum, Rugby.

A $5 donation will purchase six tastes of rhubarb-inspired desserts, cakes, pies, cookies, breads and new this year rhubarb ice cream. In 2015 more than 200 people attended and festival chair Kathy Blessum is expecting another enthusiastic crowd. “People who love rhubarb, love this event. It’s all about the rhubarb and enjoying an afternoon exploring the museum,” Blessum said.

The festival will take place, rain or shine, in the museum’s Sandven Exhibition Hall. Friends of the Museum will be selling pulled-pork sandwiches, hamburgers, hot dogs and chips from noon until gone. Coffee comes free with the rhubarb. And rhubarb recipe books will be available for sale for $5.

Entrance fee for the Rhubarb Festival is $5 for adults. Geographical Center Historical Society members, active-duty members of the U.S. military, and kids age 17 and under attend for free.

All proceeds from the Rhubarb Festival go to the museum’s Boost the Caboose campaign to raise money for the repair and restoration of the museum’s 1911 Great Northern Caboose.
