Kansas City is a fantastic place to call home all year
round. Don’t take our word for it, though! Check out one of these fantastic
winter events and see for yourself!

season! Pregame at a tailgate then watch the Chiefs play at Arrowhead Stadium. The
stadium also offers tours (including game day tours!), so don your favorite
Chiefs jersey and get your tickets today before the season is over!
Okay, we get it. Not everyone is
into sports or going outside during the winter. Maybe you want to add some
class and culture to your winter. If that sounds more like you, check out
Quality Hill Playhouse in downtown KCMO. With six musicals and cabaret revues each
year, Quality Hill Playhouse is brining professional singers to their relaxed
yet elegant atmosphere to create an experience you won’t find anywhere else.
We have a special connection to
this month-long holiday celebration, because Summit on Quality Hill was featured
in the Urban Homes Tour! Check out some of our previous Facebook and Instagram posts for more on
that! Downtown Dazzle was started in 2013 and offers holiday fun from Thanksgiving
to the end of December, bringing together KC natives and visitors to explore

What’s better on a cold winter
day than a nice, warm cup of coffee? You may not think of Kansas City as a hub
of gourmet coffee, but the Roastarie is out to change that! Check out their

there take a look at their Factory Tour hours, coffee classes, and cupping
There’s no way to think of the
holiday season and not picture lights of some sort. At the Powell Gardens Festival of Lights, the team of
horticulturists take the idea of a holiday lights display and create something
truly magical. Starting at the garden entrance, the botanically-themed displays
wind through six or the seven themed gardens for a mile of wonder. You can also
enjoy free family-friendly activities every day from 4-8 PM.
If you’ve been in Kansas City
for an amount of time, there’s a good chance you’re familiar with Worlds of
Fun. The amusement park is a great place to take the family in the warmer
months to enjoy the rides, shows, and events, but it’s also a great place to go
during the holiday season when the park is transformed for Winterfest! Holiday-themed
activities, shows, and other attractions are fun for the whole family, and they
still have select rides open as well! Check out their website for event details
and other information.

Right in the heart of KCMO,
Crown Center has tons to do year round. As with many places, it’s even more
wonderful during the holiday season. From the Ice Terrace to holiday-themed
events in addition to the shopping options, Crown Center is definitely the
place to be no matter how cold it may be outside.

over Kansas City and the surrounding area participate, offering limited
multi-course lunch and dinner menus for $15 and $33, respectively. If you’re
wanting to try out a new type of cuisine, or just want to have an excuse to not
cook for a week, this is your chance!
