Lenexa’s annual Spinach Festival was first started by LHS and taken up by the City of Lenexa. Each year we celebrate a time when Lenexa was the spinach capital of the world, featuring lots of crafts and food for sale, as well we free activities for kids.
LHS has a booth of its own each year that sells spinach related foods. This year we will once again be selling the Wimpy Burger, inspired by Popeye the Sailor Man, as well as Spinach Balls, Spinach Dip, Spinach Smoothies, and of course our World’s Largest Spinach Salad!
All proceeds go back to the operations of the Lenexa Historical Society, so come by and grab a bite while supporting local history preservation.
