Weekend Roundup

Here’s what’s happening in Kansas City March 25-27

Whether you’re taking in a show at the Kansas City Repertory Theatre or drinking wine at the K.C. Wine Festival, this weekend promises to be one for the books.


Betty Rae’s Grand Opening

It’s not quite summer, but that doesn’t mean you can’t grab a scoop of ice cream from Betty Rae’s in Waldo. The new ice cream shop will open its doors for the first time from 4 to 9 p.m. and will be offering 24 of their house-made ice cream flavors. Whether you go for the shake, sundae or float is up to you.

Disney on Ice: 100 Years of Magic

Elsa, Anna, Aladdin and the whole Disney gang will invade Sprint Center at 3 and 7 p.m. for the “ultimate Disney experience.” We have a feeling your little ones won’t be able to “Let It Go.” The show runs through March 27 and tickets are available here.

The Fantasticks

The longest-running musical in Off Broadway history continues at the Kansas City Repertory Theatre at 8 p.m. The show tells the story of two fathers who plot to make their son and daughter fall in love- but it doesn’t happen according to plan. Tickets start at $25 and can be purchased here.


Easter Egg Hunt at Powell Gardens

Ready, set, go! Let your kids put their energy to good use at the annual Easter Egg Hunt at Powell Gardens. The hunt starts at 11 a.m. for kids 10 and under. The Easter bunny will also be available afterward for photo opportunities. Admission is $10 for adults and $ 4 for children five to 12 years old. Other activities available include coloring and crafts, face painting and storytelling with Ms. Frizelle.

Uncorked: KC Wine Festival

The inaugural Kansas City Wine Festival takes place at Union Station’s Grand Ballroom, and it’s almost guaranteed to be a ball. The event features wine from more than 50 wineries, gourmet food trucks and live music. The first session takes place from 1 to 4 p.m. with the second session following from 5 to 9 p.m. General admission tickets are $50, and VIP tickets are $60. Don’t forget to dress in your Saturday best- cocktail attire is suggested.
