Second Weekends


What has traditionally been known as Second Friday has evolved into SECOND WEEKENDS in downtown Excelsior Springs. DEP is excited to sponsor this opportunity to bring residents and visitors a new favorite event! The historic downtown is known as an art-lover’s paradise. The boutiques, art galleries, restaurants and stores band together and celebrate with featured artists, live music and shopping specials.

A fine selection of art is available for viewing and for sale. Weather permitting there is music at the Carolyn Schutte Downtown Pocket Park. Murals by artist Jacob Duncan have been created on several downtown buildings and are worth coming downtown to view or see a show at Slightly Off Broadway Theatre (check the calendar) — there is plenty to do during Second Weekends!
