Time: 10:00 am - 6:00 pm
Visit three blocks of pop-up parks at a free Kansas City PARK(ing) Day Festival with live music, giant yard games, dance lessons, artists, doggie pools and food trucks.
The Kansas City Downtown Neighborhood Association is hosting its first PARK(ing) Day from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, September 18 on Walnut Street, stretching from 9th to 12th streets.
Residents, artists, businesses and organizations will temporarily transform parking spots into pop-up parks for an entertaining day to highlight the need for more pedestrian-friendly downtown spaces.
The festival is located near two KC Streetcar stops: Library stop at 9th and Main streets and the Metro Center stop at 12th and Main streets. Get more event details at Kansas City’s PARK(ing) Day Festival.
PARK(ing) Day began in 2005 in San Francisco and grew into a global event celebrated annually by hundreds of cities to highlight the need for more urban open space. To find an event in another city, visit Park(ing) Day.
