"Located at Richard L. Berkley Riverfront, KC RiverFest has become “Kansas City’s Riverfront Tradition,” known as the only place in Kansas City to celebrate the Fourth of July. This will look and feel a bit different than years past. NO tickets, NO gates, NO booze being sold at the event (waters and Pepsi products will be available!), and out of an abundance of caution we are going to skip arts-and-crafts, face painting, and the children's inflatables area. We will fold all of that back in next year as life settles down a bit and we can all be closer again. Please bring your blanket, bring your lawn chairs, bring your family, bring your friends, bring your cooler to hang out for some music, roving entertainment, and of course the largest 4th of July Fireworks show west of the Mississippi brought to you by the City of Kansas City, Missouri, and Port KC. Food trucks will be available, water and soda tents on site also." Starts at 5pm.
"Join us as we celebrate Independence Day this year. The event will be held at Blue Springs South High School at the Larry Stewart Memorial Stadium." Expect food trucks, vendors, live music and fireworks. Free admission. Starts at 6:30pm.
