SPRINGFIELD, MO — The Hatch Foundation and the Springfield Sister Cities Association present the Gigs in the Garden outdoor concert series Sundays in October, 2 p.m., at the Peace Through People Pavilion in Springfield Botanical Gardens at Nathanael Greene/Close Memorial Park, 2400 S. Scenic Ave.
Admission is free, with a $10 suggested donation to support garden projects. Beverages are available for purchase, and kids will love the playground nearby. Bring your lawn chairs or blankets and enjoy a variety of local performance groups in an extraordinary setting.
In the case of inclement weather, the concerts move inside the Springfield-Greene County Botanical Center.
The series is sponsored by Hatch Foundation, Mid-Missouri Bank, and Guaranty Bank, and managed by Springfield Sister Cities Association in cooperation with the Springfield-Greene County Park Board.
The Peace Through People Pavilion was constructed in late 2016 in the Kay Cummins Finnie Memorial Dogwood Garden, to encourage cultural performances and community events in Springfield Botanical Gardens.
