The Depot Stage
The Depot Stage is the place for a great variety of entertaining acts including science demonstrations, dog shows, dance performances, and live music. Headlining the festival are The Elders, an Irish American folk rock band and an area favorite for fans of all ages. The stage, located on SE Main Street just south of 2nd street, will feature performances throughout the weekend of the festival. All performances are free to attend.
Full Schedule Coming Soon!
This year’s event is full of family-friendly entertainment and activities for all ages to enjoy. Kids’ Street on Douglas Street from 2nd to 3rd streets is packed with booths and vendors catering to the younger crowd.
Sports & Autograph Booth
Visitors to this year’s Downtown Days Festival will want to stop by the Sports Booth, sponsored by Security Bank of Kansas City, to complete their festival experience. The Sports Booth, located near the corner of 3rd and SE Main streets, will have opportunities for festival attendees to win prizes at the Spin to Win Wheel, visit with local athletes in the autograph area, and watch live sporting events on TV in the booth. Prizes available during the weekend include tickets to Royals games, autographed Chiefs memorabilia, K-State items, and gift cards to local Lee’s Summit restaurants.
To some of the younger festival attendees, the carnival and its rides are the main attraction of the weekend. Tickets are sold at the carnival entrance and can then be redeemed to ride the carnival rides. On Sunday, June 3, bring your kids out for wristband day where you can buy a wristband for your little thrill-seeker and they can ride unlimited rides during festival hours for only $20 per person! PS – the wristbands fit adults too, but we suggest saving the funnel cake until after you’ve gotten your fill of carnival rides.
