From Kansas City Kansas Street Blues Festival Website:

Welcome to the Kansas City Kansas Street Blues Festival. This festival was started in 2000 to honor the cultural contributions of Kansas Citys rich blues and jazz heritage and the strong relationship between the musicians and the northeast neighborhood. As stated by many musicians, this northeast area was popular during the 40s through the 70s as a hotbed for the blues, with a little jazz mixed in. This unique music festival focuses on performers who were born, raised, lived in Kansas City, Kansas, or who played a significant number of years there. Some of the indigenous artists who have performed at the festival include Lawrence Wright, Jay McShann, Provine Little Hatch, Myra Taylor, Ida McBeth, The Scamps, Linda Shell, Bobby Watson, Millage Gilbert, Annetta Cotton Candy Washington, D.C. Bellamy, Sonny Kenner, King Alex Littlejohn, and Danny Cox.

Overwhelmingly, the festival has proven to be a positive, thriving part of the community in delivering a distinctive historical, cultural and musical event. The Kansas City Kansas Street Blues Festival has been awarded numerous honors and recognitions, and is a two-time National Endowment for the Arts recipient. This years gala will take place at Lavenders Circle L Ranch located at 3924 N 49th Drive, Kansas City, KS, on June 29, 2019. Our festivals sole purpose is to present the artists with the greatest honor of heritage while maintaining the respect amongst the community we serve. It is a pleasure for the artists and the festivalgoers alike to experience firsthand this down-to-earth blues celebration.

The variety of vendor booths continues to be a much anticipated attraction each year where vendors are friendly and reputable, and demonstrate a unique small-town fair atmosphere serving down-home, authentic dishes. It is our goal to continue promoting what a true community festival is all about and reminds us of what Kansas City is all aboutunassuming, honest, real.
