The Plaza Art Fair is one of KC's time honored traditions. The weather is always perfect and you get to bust out your cool fall clothes. Yes, many people go for the art...but the majority of people who attend (all 300,000+) also go to catch up with friends, people watch, drink some wine and enjoy some great food.
The Weston Irish Festival began in 2000 and has grown to a three day event of all things Irish. Located in the sleepy town of Historic Weston, Missouri, the Irish Fest brings over 7,000 festival goers to a three acre property in the middle of Weston which encompasses O'Malley's Irish Pub, American Boman Restaurant, the Weston Brewing Company. In the middle of all the fun is an Irish-esq grassy knoll with a huge stage that boasts entertainment from dawn until the wee Irish hours of the morn.
