It’s a festival of festivals this weekend in our neighborhood! The weather is looking good to be outdoors and enjoy cooler weather while supporting regional artists, local businesses and restaurants.
The 35th Brookside Art Annual is back, after being cancelled last year due to the COVID pandemic. Hours are Friday 5-9pm; Saturday 10am-9pm; Sunday 11am-5pm Sept 17-19. Tents will be set up at 63rd St and Brookside Blvd. There will be children’s activities each day and food available from Charlie Hooper’s, Michael Forbes, Cosintino’s and Topsy’s. Please leave pets at home! More details on the artists featured at www.brooksideartannual.com.
Also this weekend is the 29th Annual Waldo Fall Festival, in a new location: the parking lot at Gregory and Wornall off the Trolley Track Trail. According to the Waldo KC website, this year’s festival will feature local pop up shops and vendors with special offers, plus services and local Waldo information. In the past, there have been children’s activities and food trucks but those aren’t mentioned for this year’s event. Still, it’s fun to browse the tents and support our local businesses! Hours are 10am-5pm.
Get out and enjoy our neighborhood celebrations this weekend!
