Get ready to travel around the world this weekend, August 16-18, 2019, at the annual Kansas City Ethnic Enrichment Festival at Swope Park (near the front entrance). Admission is $5 for adults; FREE for kids (12 and under) if accompanied by a paying adult. Parking is FREE as well.
This event features vendors representing more than 60 different cultures selling food, crafts and performing ethnic music and dances. Foodies will delight in the eating selection that will send you into an ethnic food coma after each day of tasting treats like fry bread, empanadas, crepes, fish and chips, spinach pie, fried yucca, meat kabobs, curried chicken and calypso rice, strudel and lots more. Check out this year’s menu here. Wash any and all of this down with beer (on tap and bottles) or wine that’s available for purchase.
The festival runs from 5 to 10 p.m. on Friday, noon to 10 p.m. on Saturday, and noon to 6 p.m. on Sunday. The daily entertainment schedule is provided below.
Swope Park is located at 6600 Swope Parkway in Kansas City, Missouri.
