Take a ride on the new Streetcar!

After Thursday’s vendor Social Event + Reception from 5p – 6:30p in the Count Basie EXPO, we recommend you experience Kansas City’s urban neighborhoods through food and drink via the KC Streetcar.  From Kansas City’s first and oldest incorporated district, the Kansas City River Market, to Downtown’s newest neighborhood, the Power + Light District and the art and architecture center of the city, the Crossroads Arts District, you will find a wide array of food and drink opportunities.  Begin your experience with these recommendations located along the streetcar route:
