About this event

This pumpkin-themed fundraiser features area chefs and restaurants that have prepared delicious delicacies made with pumpkin for our tasting pleasure. Guests vote for a People's Choice winner and see who special guest judges select as Overall Pumpkin Champion and other awards. Competing participants include Albion College, Capt Cook, Fetzer Center, FireKeepers Casino, Friendship Village, Heritage Community of Kalamazoo, KRESA Culinary Arts Program, and Van Buren Tech.

Proceeds help Kalamazoo in Bloom purchase thousands of locally grown plants and flowers to beautify public spaces in downtown Kalamazoo and Portage's City Center like Bronson Park, Library Lane, and more.

As an event sponsor, you will gain exposure to community members and special donors who will see your support for making our greater Kalamazoo area a great place to live, work, and play. And with a sponsorship of $2,000*, $600*, or $350, your exposure increases with a 2023 flower bed sponsorship in Bronson Park. The name of your business/organization is displayed on a flower bed sign all summer long! (*Sponsorship may be customized. Contact Monika Trahe.)

This online sponsorship is for credit card payments only. If you wish to pay by check, please contact Monika Trahe at 269-548-6232 or rsvp@kalamazooinbloom.org. Checks made payable to Kalamazoo in Bloom can be mailed to P.O. Box 20178, Kalamazoo, MI 49019-1178. Thank you!
