Brookside Art Annual - the first weekend in May
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. 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! You can find out more specifics and a list of current and past artists at BrooksideArtAnnual.com.
