DateSaturday, October 7, 2017
WaterFire, held each year along the banks of Brush Creek by the Country Club Plaza, will be on Saturday, October 7, 2017.
WaterFire has many components, however the focal point is the installation of braziers in Brush Creek. The fragrance of aromatic wood smoke and flickering firelight of each brazier create a unique ambiance unlike anything else in Kansas City.
Live vocals, dance and acrobatics will be performed by Quixotic, StoneLion Puppet Theatre, Rhythmic Flames, Kansas City Drum Tribe, Trio Forte and renowned operatic tenor Ben Gulley.
In addition to the entertainment, Seasons 52, Zocalo Mexican Tequileria, Cooper's Hawk and The Capital Grille will have pop-up food and drink stands.
This is the 11th year WaterFire Kansas City will light Brush Creek on fire. Thousands of people have attended in the past to see KC’s interpretation of Barnaby Evans’ original installation in Providence, Rhode Island.
