The 2016 Kansas City Auto Show will fill Bartle Hall with over 500 new cars, trucks, SUVs, crossovers, and minivans. This year we’ve added new attractions that will make the auto show more fun for people of all persuasions, ages, and interests. This year, we’re staging an AutoFest. “What is an AutoFest?” you might ask. Let’s break it down:
Auto (n.) – of or relating to automobiles
Fest (n.) – any activity which we understand to include fun, food, and beer
Put it all together and you won’t want to miss this year’s Kansas City Auto Show: music to create our own party atmosphere, a brand new Kids Korner to entertain our younger audience, local food trucks, and craft beers served in KC’s Garage (our new beer garden)
It’s the social event of the year. It’s the place to see and be seen. Don’t miss the party.
