It saddens us to announce that the 2020 Southtown Showcase is being POSTPONED. With the City's ban on gatherings of 50 people or more, we can't hold the event as originally scheduled. While disappointed to make this decision, we understand that safety comes first and the decision is in the best interest of everyone involved. We know the beloved event is a favorite each year, and so many will miss the opportunity to get together and enjoy outstanding food and drinks. For that reason we're hopeful to regroup for a great Showcase later this year when it's safe to be together again.
The 2020 Southtown Showcase is right around the corner. Don't miss your opportunity to sample local food and drinks, meet others from across KC, win prizes and most of all have fun! The annual event showcases local restaurants, food and drink vendors, businesses and organizations from across South Central KC, Brookside, Troost & the surrounding areas. From smoked meatballs to ceviche, snow cones to pateries, and local brews and spirits to world-class wines the samples at the Southtown Showcase are a must have, so don't miss out!
