Quoted from their website:
This year marks the 74th year for the Plaza Art Fair, which is consistently recognized as one of the nation's top 10 fine art fairs. In a highly competitive jury process, over 1,450 artists submit their best in hopes of becoming an exhibitor in the nationally recognized program.

Throughout the years, the Plaza Art Fair has become one of Kansas City's most popular attractions and autumn traditions. The three-day event annually attracts an estimated 300,000 art enthusiasts, which features 230 artists from 36 states. The celebration of the arts extends 9-blocks into the streets of the Plaza, and showcases the finest works in ceramics, digital art, fiber, glass, graphics and printmaking, jewelry, metal, mixed media, painting, pastels, photography, sculpture and wood. The fine quality and beauty attracts admirers and buyers alike to browse the outdoor art gallery.

While beautiful alone, the visual arts aren’t the only treat for the senses. The culinary, musical, and interactive arts also delight art fair attendees. With delicious food, wonderful music and interactive art experiences for all ages, something fantastic is awaiting discovery around every corner.

With classic Spanish architecture, glorious fountains, and beautiful sculptures, the Country Club Plaza is a work of art all by itself. A perfect setting for an art event, the Plaza Art Fair tradition began in 1932. For seven decades, the exhibits have grown in quality and creativity to become a nationally recognized fine art and fine craft festival, and a beloved Kansas City tradition.
