Party on Troost 

The legacy of Troost Avenue is common knowledge to most Kansas Citians. Once highly respected as an artery of culture and business, the street crumbled into poverty and danger over years of social dysfunction. But those who know Troost as it is now know it as a dynamic corridor that is, yes, spotted with blight, but which is again emerging as a center of commerce, hope and underestimated beauty. Honoring the promise and diversity of the avenue is the point of the Sixth Annual Troost Festival, which brings music, vendors, exhibits and family activities to the 3100 block from noon to 10 p.m. The theme of this party is "neighbors celebrating neighbors." See troostvillage.org for more information.
Sat., May 22, 12-10 p.m., 2010
