This Weekend in Kansas City: Plaza Art Fair and Waldo Fall Festival

It’s here…one of the MOST FUN weekends to live in Kansas City!  Everyone likes a vibrant, entertaining outdoor festival, and this weekend offers two events to enjoy:

Plaza Art Fair 2012

The 81st Annual Plaza Art Fair is happening Friday (5pm-10pm), Saturday (10am-10pm) and Sunday (11am-5pm) on the Country Club Plaza.  Walk along the streets offering  240 artists’ booths,  three different music stages and a kids art workshop sponsored by the Kansas City Art Institute.  One of my favorite parts of the fair is snacking my way through the food booths–delicious street food of all types from local and national restaurants. The Plaza Art Fair is also ideal for people watching–you’re bound to bump into someone you know here. And be sure to check out local band She’s A Keeper, performing at 2:30pm Sunday at the INK stage, near Plaza III Steakhouse.  She’s A Keeper plays  catchy, melodic songs featuring Brookside resident Colin Nelson.

The Waldo Fall Festival is a smaller gathering but just as much of a good time.  Very family oriented, the Waldo event offers a dog show, a family bike ride, local business vendor booths and Mr Stinky Feet Jim

Cosgrove performing on stage.  There will be food, giveaways and kids’ activities too.  The Waldo Fall Festival is Saturday from 10am-5pm at the corner of 75th and Wornall.

With warm and sunny weather forecast for the weekend, both of these festivals will be packed with people.  Join  your friends and neighbors this weekend for the Plaza Art Fair and Waldo Fall Festival!
