38th Annual Art Westport

This September, you’re invited to join more than 150 of the Kansas City area’s top artists who’ll line the streets of Westport — the perfect backdrop for this lively three-day event — showcasing original art, one-of-a-kind jewelry, fine crafts and more. Now in its 38th year, Art Westport is Kansas City’s only outdoor art show and festival exclusively for LOCAL artists.

Art Westport is not just an arts festival, but a favorite among locals and visitors alike. Make plans now to be a part of this homegrown tradition:

Friday, Sept. 8, 2017 — 1 pm to 9 pm
Saturday, Sept. 9, 2017 — 10 am to 9 pm
Sunday, Sept. 10, 2017 — 11 am to 5 pm

Artist Signup & Booth Application

Like Westport itself, Art Westport has a unique vibe all its own. We’re proud to feature 100 percent local artists, specifically from the Kansas City metro area. (Artists wishing to apply must live within an 80-mile radius of the downtown Kansas City, Mo., post office.)

Don’t have experience exhibiting or selling artwork in commercial/community art shows? Apply to Art Westport’s Emerging Artist Program! Upon acceptance, emerging artists receive mentoring resources and a 50 percent discount on a quad space.
