What to know before Plaza Art Fair: Hours, parking, entertainment


KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The 92nd annual Plaza Art Fair returns to Kansas City’s Country Club Plaza this weekend, bringing hundreds of artists and thousands of people to the area.

The Plaza Art Fair is set for Sept. 22-24 for the beloved celebration of art, food, culture and music.

The art fair will be open this weekend during the following times:

  • Saturday, Sept. 23 from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.
