2020 Art Annual Postponed to Sept. 18th-20th

The Art Annual is celebrating its 35th years in 2020. Originally planned for May, the show has been rescheduled to September 18th thru the 20th. We hope you'll join us to celebrate one of the KC Metro's best annual attractions right here in Brookside. Located in an eclectic neighborhood in the center of Kansas City, the historic Brookside Shops are just minutes from downtown, the Plaza, and the southern suburbs. Although we have a variety of activities, our focus at the show is ART! The show brings top artists from around the country and consistently ranks in the top 25 shows according to Art Source.

Friday, September 18th
5pm - 9pm

Saturday, September 19th
10am - 9pm

Sunday, September 20th
