Summer Events

The Foodie Chick Event is the latest concept brought to you by Chick Events. Guests will feast on top restaurant bites, local KC wine, craft beer, coffee & tea and vote for their favorites. Enjoy tastings from Kansas City restaurants, a dozen specialty drinks (wine, beer, coffee) in addition to shopping our marketplace filled with artisan food and food/drink/ entertaining product vendors. This inaugural event will take place on the streets of Park Place for a tasting & shopping experience unlike any other for all foodies. Ticket sales for this event will support our non-profit partner NewHouse.

Does this event support a non-profit?

Yes, Chick Events always tries to partner with a local non-profit. Our goal is to bring awareness and much needed funds to non-profit organizations. For the Foodie Chick Event we are proud to partner with NewHouse. The mission of Newhouse is to break the cycle of domestic violence by providing the tools that allow women to make positive choices and lead self-sufficient and fulfilling lives. Ticket sales will support our monetary donation to this worthy and incredible partner.

Why did the start time change to 6pm?

Due to the NWS heat advisory in effect until Saturday at 8pm for Johnson County we felt changing the start time is in the best interest for all guests and vendors. There will still be plenty of time to enjoy all the tastings, marketplace shopping and all the event happenings. The VIP Tasting Times remain the same.
