2020 Brookside Art Annual


2020 Art Annual Postponed

The Brookside Business Association and Brookside CID regret to announce that we are postponing the 35th Brookside Art Annual. This year’s Art Annual was to have been held May 1st-3rd, but to ensure public safety and comply with the current restrictions on public gatherings, we must postpone the event to a future date. We know this announcement will be disappointing to so many, as the annual art show means a lot to our community, our businesses, and the artists who come from across the nation. We will reevaluate our options once gathering and stay-at-home restrictions are lifted, it is deemed safe to be out in large numbers again, and a more appropriate date becomes apparent.

The Brookside Art Annual is hosted by the Brookside Business Association (BBA). The BBA is a non-profit organization of merchants working to promote and improve the community in the heart of Kansas City. Dominated by quaint neighborhoods, the Brookside neighborhood becomes the center of the Midwest art community each May. The Brookside Art Annual is known for its festive atmosphere, hospitality, convenience, and has become a must-attend event for artists and art seekers alike.

The show is located at 63rd and Brookside Boulevard (one block east of Wornall) between 63rd Street and Meyer Boulevard.

2020 Art Annual Hours:
Rescheduled dates to be determined.
Friday, 5pm-9pm
Saturday, 10am-9pm
Sunday, 11am-5pm

The annual show includes children's activities on Saturday and Sunday, including face painting, arts and crafts, balloon animals and more. And while you’re at the show enjoy some of the best Brookside has to offer at our Art Annual food booths - local restaurants serve up a variety of delicious food and drink options ranging from savory burgers to bacon wrapped dates, and stuffed artichoke to lobster mac & cheese. There’s something for everyone!
