Must Visit Festivals & Events for October 2015


Handmade in Kansas City members will be out and about this fall at several events. This is a great opportunity to meet us in person, see our beautiful handmade items, and share in the fall fun and great weather! It’s never too early to begin looking for special gifts for friends and family members for Christmas, either, and buying handmade adds that touch that says you really care, plus it supports local small businesses and Kansas City in general! Here are some local fall events in the Kansas City area for the month of October, and more about them so you can see which ones you would like to attend.

Gladfest Fall Festival: Gladfest was recently voted the “Best Annual Fair/Festival in the Northland”. October 2nd in the evening and October 3rd are the days available for shopping with local area crafters and vendors. You can always count on lots of great food, beverages and music! Ivory Isis, recycled jewelry and vintage designs, will be attending this event with Tania’s beautiful jewelry. Schedule and even more details are available here.

It is a marketplace with over 80 handcrafted and vintage vendors, an artisan food pavilion, whiskey and wine seminars and tastings, craft beer by Boulevard Brewing Company, local food, local bands, and plenty to see and do!
