After a grey and drenching start to the unofficial start of summer Memorial Day weekend, the citizens of Kansas City are ready to add a little sun and fun into their summer routine. As one of the newest destination cities, Kansas City continues to assert its presence and this summer’s line-up is no exception. From music and theatre to food and drink and sporting events there’s no better way to beat the Midwest heat and humidity than by gathering with friends and family for some fun, good food and cooling drinks.
Music – While Kansas City may be best well-known for the smoking jazz born on 18th and Vine, the next three months will present a music-lovers paradise with everything from the Rolling Stones at Arrowhead June 27 to the 90+ bands of the Vans Warped Tour on July 30. Throughout the summer, free music can also be heard at Jazz in the Woods and at community weekend music festivals in Kansas City, Eureka Springs, Overland Park and throughout the metro.
Food and Wine – Although you might not think of Kansas and Missouri as wine-growing epicenters, the region is coming into its own with a growing number of award-winning varietals. From the Missouri Norton grape and other regional grapes, winemakers are crafting deep reds, sweet dessert wines and light rosé varieties. Taste the best of the region at wineries on the Kaw Valley and KC Wine Trails. If your taste in libations is more influenced by the craft movement, consider the Taste of Kansas City’s Cocktail and Jazz Tour.
Sporting Events – Kansas City summers are all about the boys in blue, whether that’s cheering on the Kansas City Royals or Sporting KC. Both teams have single-handedly increased hometown team pride by becoming American League champions and winners of the Major League Soccer Cup. Check out Sporting KC in Sporting Park at the Legends and don’t forget about the family fun rooting on the minor league T-Bones also at the Legends. Visit the K during the week to get a jump on baseball weekends with GordoNation Thursdays and Friday Night Fireworks after the games.
