At Cami Jones & Company, we love to go out and explore the city when the weather starts warming up! We want our clients to be in the know about all of the cool things that Kansas City has to offer whether they just moved here or have lived around KC their whole lives and want to just find something new and fun to do.
7 Awesome Things to do in Kansas City During Spring and Summer
There is nothing like attending a baseball game when the weather is perfect. We love going to both Royals and T-Bones games throughout the spring and summer. If you are new to KC, we highly suggest catching a game! Click to view the 2019 Royals schedule and the 2019 T-Bones schedule.
2. Attend Shakespeare in the Park
Shakespeare in the Park, also known as the Heart of America Shakespeare Festival, is a free event that runs from June 11th to July 7th and starts at 8:00pm Tuesday-Sunday. We highly suggest heading out to Southmoreland Park and enjoy some amazing live theater performances this summer!
3. Catch an Outdoor Movie
Movies in the Park at Shawnee Mission Park is a great way to revamp the typical at-home movie night when evenings start to warm up. All of the movies played at this cool community event are family-friendly so you can even take the kids to see some of their favorites. Gates open at 7:30pm and the movie starts at 8:00pm. Did we mention that admission is only $1.00? Make sure you bring a blanket and some lawn chairs!

4. Explore Powell Gardens
Powell Gardens is a must during the spring and summer. They have eight themed gardens that you can walk through with all with different types of plants and landscapes. You can even pack a picnic and enjoy lunch surrounded by beautiful flowers.
5. Visit a Famer’s Market
Farmer’s markets happen all around Kansas City in the spring and summer months. Enjoy eyeing fresh produce, browsing jewelry and crafts made by locals and soak up some sunshine. You should, of course, check out City Market, but here is a full list of farmer’s markets going on in the area.
6. Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art
The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art is probably the first place that comes to mind when you think of art museums in Kansas City, but the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art is definitely an impressive establishment that is deserving of a spot on this list. They have a fantastic permanent collection and regularly bring in new exhibitions all of the time. The museum is a bit smaller than the Nelson, so you can look at every beautiful piece easily in an afternoon.
7. See an Outdoor Concert
Kansas City has a fantastic music scene and offers a ton of outdoor concerts throughout the warmer months. Some of our favorite venues to see shows at include the Starlight Theater, KC Bier Co. and CrossroadsKC at Grinders. Great music and drinks in the great outdoors, what more could you ask for in an evening of summer fun?!
