More Than Jazz And BBQ
We are well-known for our jazz and our barbecue, but we have grown into much more than that. Our wide boulevards and numerous fountains are emblematic of the city’s European-inspired design, while the flourishing arts scene has produced a new generation of local craftspeople, gifted artisans, and creative manufacturers. Kansas City has much more to offer than you may know. Experience it firsthand and find your new favorite city.
