Rest assured, Kansas City is finding ways to celebrate the holidays, and we’ll do your best to let you know about them.
This is a growing list of 2020 holiday events in Kansas City. This day by day guide will include local events and activities celebrated through New Year’s Day.
Some of the most popular events aren’t taking place or will be taking place virtually. Some others will look different this year. You can expect lots of drive-in, drive-through, and socially distanced events.
Some local holiday events and activities are outside of our normal “free and cheap” focus. We’ve chosen to include them because some people want to splurge during this time or year. Also, some have a cost associated, but really aren’t that expensive if you’re diving the cost between a group.
A few of the biggest events are highlighted then you can scroll down to see our big day-by day-list of holiday events.
This is a work in progress, so check back often. As always, if you know of any events we’ve left out, please send us a note at email@example.com and we’ll add them as time allows.
