After a long grey winter, the city is bursting back to life in a blaze of Royal blue with the Royals home opener on Monday, April 6, against the Chicago White Sox. One week later, Fountain Day will mark the start of Kansas City’s spring when the city’s 48 fountains are turned on. This year’s event will also include the long-awaited unveiling of the newly refurbished JC Nichols Memorial and Seville Light Fountains on the Country Club Plaza. When the daffodils and tulips make their appearance, you’ll know it’s time to start making plans for fun in the weeks ahead with the kick-off of Kansas City’s entertainment season.
Culture in the Air
In April, the city will host three weeks of music, art, technology and culture at Ink’s Middle of the Map Fest featuring 120 local, national, international and emerging artists. Held in locations throughout the city, the festival features music in the historic Westport entertainment district, a cultural Forum with author Malcolm Gladwell at the Kauffman Center, and a downtown film fest at the Alamo Drafthouse. In addition to the Middle of the Map Fest, venues throughout the city will host a range of musical theatre, orchestral, and an eclectic range of rock, country and classical artists.
