POSTED: 04/24/2013

The 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. This event, which is conducted by the Johnson County Park & Recreation District, will take place on May 18 in conjunction with the City of Merriam's Turkey Creek Festival. Both the festival and the craft show will take place in Antioch Park, 6501 Antioch Road, Merriam.

Other Festival activities will include: a Lion's Club pancake feed from 7 to 11 a.m., the Turkey Creek Festival 5K Run, Walks & Youth Sprint, a free petting zoo, pedal boat rides, free youth activities, specialty food vendors, and inflatable games. To find this program in the JCPRD’s Activities catalog and online listings, browse first under fun for all and then under special events. In the catalog and when using the website’s advanced search, look for the keyword “arts.”
