OUTFEST! Kansas City Event - Upcoming!

The event formerly known as "Out in Westport" has changed its name and moved its location. I have totally enjoyed this event in the past, moreso than Kansas City's June gay pride event. Last year, instead of taking place on Westport Road, it moved to Gillham Park. The organizers have decided to return to the park this year. Bring your chair or blankets, a picnic basket, and enjoy the totally local entertainment, the vendors and the booths, and the great cameraderie. Here's the formal announcement.

OutFest Kansas City
October 18, 2009
11:00 - 5:00
Gillham Park

Plan to attend the 15th annual community festival featuring the diversity of our community brought to you by the LGCCKC. The primary purpose of OutFest is to honor National Coming Out Month and underscore the value of the Lesbian and Gay Community Center of Greater Kansas City. This event also highlights the diversity of Westport and Greater Kansas City, demonstrates the importance of "gay" dollars to the local economy, and supports the LGBT community by providing cultural and organizational information to all attendees.

The next planning meeting for OutFest 2009 will be August 19 at 6 p.m. in the Community Center Meeting Room of the Spirit of Hope MCC. Please contact the event chair, David Whitner for details.
