Our Signature Events

The Summit Art Plein Air Festival happens April 10-11, 2020, at Crestview Dairy in Lee’s Summit, MO. This historic landmark and private estate is the picturesque setting for our newest annual signature event, featuring over 100 artists creating paintings right before your eyes! Purchase your next treasure right off the easel.

The Summit Art Festival is held in the bustling entertainment and historic downtown district of Lee’s Summit, MO,  in October. Featuring over 100 artists from across the country, visitors enjoy a unique blend of art, music and street fare! Unfortunately, due to the pandemic, this year’s art festival has been canceled.

We are exploring options for many other virtual events, so stayed tuned!
