This Weekend IN Kansas City: April 21-23

Looking to hit the town this weekend but not sure what to do? We have some ideas.

18th and Vine Jazz Festival April 20-22
In a city built around the history of jazz, we like to celebrate the jazz icons who came from Kansas City and the ones who are up and coming. The American Jazz Museum and Metropolitan Community College has invited local college, high school, and middle school students to participate. Members of the public can attend the festival for free, with performances back-to-back from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. 

Bra Couture KC April 21
There’s something extra special about the models featured in Bra Couture KC—each one is a breast cancer survivor. At this annual event, eclectic work-of-art bras are shown off on the runway and are part of an auction that benefits The University of Kansas Cancer Center, University Health, Verda’s Place, Cancer Action, Samuel U Rodger and Liberty Hospital to help provide care to breast cancer patients. In addition to the fashion show, plan to mingle with Kansas City Chiefs Super Bowl players, enjoy drinks, fabulous food, and raffles.

Downtown Brunch Walk April 22
Kansas City’s Power & Light District is hosting a brunch walk where you can explore downtown while enjoying the weekend’s best meal. With a general admission ticket, you’ll get a brunch cocktail and small plate from each participating venue—and you’ll get to revisit your favorite stop for another four-ounce cocktail. Plan on local shopping too! The Strawberry Swing Indie Craft Market will feature plenty of local vendors.

Parkville’s Microbrew Fest April 22
Plan an afternoon in Historic Downtown Parkville sampling microbrews at one of KC’s largest beer festivals. Festival admission includes a commemorative logo tasting glass, live music, and all the beer you care to sample from 1 to 5 p.m. Expect over 300 different handcrafted brews to be available for tasting. 

Not-Your-Kid’s Scholastic Boozy Book Fair April 22
If you were a kid in school at any time over the last few decades, you’re probably familiar with the sheer joy you felt when it was book fair day in your school library. Get ready to feel all the nostalgic vibes as Redux Society teams with HUES Book Box, Helianthus Books, and Basement Books KC to throw an old-fashioned book fair—but this time it is just for the adults.
