How To Bottoms Up With Us!

Leave your worries at home and join us for a day on the trolley. You'll be treated to awesome stories about three historic neighborhoods in Kansas City and be driven around from location to location as you sample food, music, coffee, art and performances from local artists. The Trolley will run on a loop throughout the day so you can come and go as you please!

If you prefer to skip the trolley and drive yourself, we'll have some off-street parking as well as on-street parking available on a first-come, first-served basis.
