Plan to kick off the summer during the Downtown Days…Streets Alive! Festival spanning six blocks in the historic and award-winning Downtown Lee’s Summit central business district.
Downtown Days, Friday to Sunday, June 6-8, features live entertainment. Food vendors, a car show, carnival, kids games and the KCBS-sanctioned Smokin’ on the Summit BBQ contest all are part of this year’s festivities. Festival hours are from noon to 10 p.m. Friday, June 6; 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Saturday, June 7; and 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday, June 8.
For more than 20 years, Downtown Lee’s Summit Main Street has been hosting a family-friendly street festival, which has grown into one of the largest festivals in the area and the first of the summer, attracting not only thousands of residents, but also guests from cities throughout the region. And every year, the Downtown Days committee brings in new events and activities, and this year is no exception, promising a few attractions festival-goers won’t see anywhere else.
Of course, what festival would be complete without summertime food and plenty of vendors? Downtown Days is now accepting applications for vendors of all kinds. Vendor applications can be downloaded at www.leessummitdownto
wndays.com. Applications are due by April 1.
Downtown Days...Streets Alive! is the major fundraiser for Downtown Lee's Summit Main Street, a 501c3 nonprofit organization dedicated to the revitalization and historic preservation of Downtown Lee's Summit.
