Kansas City's 18th & Vine Jazz & Blues Festival
Kansas City's 18th & Vine Jazz and Blues Festival (formerly Rhythm & Ribs) will be Saturday, October 12. The re-branding will help connect the festival at the historic 18th and Vine area to Kansas City's history as one of the homes of jazz, said Trey Runnion, chairman of the museum's board.Only about 5,000 people came to the festival last year because of rain, said Suzetta Parks, the festival's executive producer. This year, she expects 7,000 to 10,000 people to attend. The festival began in 2005, but it took a one-year hiatus in 2009.The events begin at 11 a.m. Oct. 12 and will last until midnight. Tickets are on sale now and start at $10. They can be purchased by going to Ticketmaster.com or by calling 816-474-6262.
