The 11th annual Troost Festival is Saturday, May 16.

Midtown will be celebrating the residents, history and diversity of Troost Avenue tomorrow at the 11th annual Troost Festival.

The festival is a big street party dedicated to celebrating the diversity of the Troost community, according to organizers.

“It is by recognizing our collective cultures and learning to draw out the best and let go of the worst, a new culture emerges that transcends what any of us could be merely on our own. We really become ‘better together,’” they say on the Troost Festival website

There’s a lengthy lineup of music acts as well as vendors and all sorts of activities.

The Midtown KC Post will be there. Mary Jo Draper will be signing her new book Kansas City’s Historic Midtown Neighborhoods. We’ll also have a historical map and photos of Troost, and we invite you to let us know what you know about the history of Troost and what you would like to know.

Please stop by and say hello.
