Flocker's Guide

Ride your bike to the Crossroads

Avoid all that car nonsense and have your bicycle stored and watched over at our Free Bike Valet by the caring staff at BikeWalkKC, brought to you by Boulevard Brewing Company. Swing by the Flock Party tent with your valet ticket for a little special somethin’.

Bring a water bottle

Don’t hate: hydrate. Bring a vessel and fill it up at our water station and keep those plastic cups off the street! Beautify your neighborhood for flocking by disposing of waste and recycling in proper receptacles.

Bring a bag

Big or small, cute or ugly, bring something to haul off your handmade treasure from the maker’s market or a fresh art print from Oddities Prints.

Bring your listening ears

Crossroads Flock Party brings you 8 of Kansas City’s most interesting musical groups, so be prepared to hear something excellent that you haven’t heard before.

Bring your thoughts

Feed Pop Up Charlie’s curiosity and get to know your neighbors by contributing to a community-driven art piece, supported by the folks at MoBank.

Come hungry

Satiate your appetite with street fare from Mildred’s, The Sundry, and The Bite.

Come thirsty

Beer and cocktails at the Flock Party Bar: a proven way to loosen up that ego and get to know your neighbors.

Leave yourself behind

Help us celebrate what’s unique about Kansas City and the Crossroads by being yourself and appreciating others doing the same.
