Antioch Park to host Summertime Arts & Craft Show and Turkey Creek Festival
POSTED: 05/01/2012
JCPRD’s Summertime Arts and Craft Show is one highlight of a fun-filled day which annually attracts people from all over the Kansas City metropolitan area to Antioch Park in mid-May. The event will take place on May 19 in conjunction with the City of Merriam’s Turkey Creek Festival.

Other festival activities will include: a Lion’s Club pancake feed from 7 to 11 a.m., the Turkey Creek Festival 5K Run, a petting zoo, pedal boat rides, free youth activities, specialty food vendors, and giant air structures and inflatables.

The Summertime Arts & Craft Show is set from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and will showcase unique handmade goods such as pottery, jewelry, children’s clothing and blankets, home décor, garden art, and more.

“The Turkey Creek Festival is a wonderful tradition for the city of Merriam and it offers activities for all ages and interests,” said JCPRD Fine Arts Coordinator Sarah Lenahan. "We’re excited to once again host The Summertime Arts and Craft portion of the festival, which gives families a chance to spend a day together in the park and support the work and creativity of small-business owners in the Midwest.”

Arts and crafts entries are still being accepted through May 11. For an entry form or more information, visit the Summertime Arts & Crafts page at, or contact Fine Arts Coordinator Sarah Lenahan at or (913) 826-3163.

For information on other festival events, go to the Turkey Creek Festival web page at or call Merriam Parks and Recreation at (913) 322-5550.

Because this is an outdoor event, the Turkey Creek Festival Committee reserves the right to alter or cancel the event in case of inclement weather.

Antioch Park is conveniently located just south of Shawnee Mission Parkway at 6501 Antioch Road in Merriam.
