August is food festival time in Kansas CityAug 05, 2016
From bacon to baklava, Kansas City has something to whet your appetite in August. Three annual festivals will take place here, and you’re guaranteed to get your fill of food and fun.
Heart of America Hot Dog Festival
Baseball and hot dogs go together, so it makes sense that the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum hosts the annual Heart of America Hot Dog Festival. Enjoy ballpark hot dogs, including Kansas City’s signature Monarch Dog. Legendary R&B group, ConFunkShun, heads a list of world-class performers. And the 2nd Annual Summer Sizzler Corvette Show is joining the festivities this year.
This weekend extravaganza takes you around the world, without leaving Kansas City. Experience culinary delights from dozens of countries, along with music, dancing, and diverse cultural experiences at this one-of-a-kind annual event.
Bacon-Fest: The Other Fundraiser
Summer is sizzling with the scent of bacon—from bacon-flavored beverages (vodka, beer, soda) to just about anything that can be wrapped, stuffed, or seasoned with bacon. Every vendor is provided with 30 pounds of bacon! And the bacon-eating contest tests the limits of your bacon boundaries. Bacon-Fest raises money to empower individuals with disabilities achieve their full potential by offering therapeutic, educational, and rehabilitation services.
Save your appetite for a visit to Kansas City this August. You can be sure our team from Johnson County Siding & Windows will be there!
