Pint Path is coming!!  Sign up for free to earn your chance at this year’s glassware!

After a long day of enjoying the art and bands and games down at The Swift Mile art market, you’ll want to stop in to one of NKC’s many tap rooms, breweries, sports bars, dives and cafes.  But which one do you choose??  There are specials going on all over town in celebration of The Swift Mile, and during the hours of 12pm-5pm the day of the festival, you don’t have to make the tough decision– just go hit up FOUR of them!

What is this Swift Mile Festival?



Swift Mile, North Kansas City’s Newest Street Festival, features a local maker/artist market and performance artist providing entertainment through out the event. We will have food trucks and musicians placed strategically in the market enticing you to venture down Swift. Tour the tucked away hidden gem that is historic downtown North Kansas City with a day of sampling NKC food and drink establishments– ranging from classic neighborhood pubs, to new craftbrew powerhouses that are putting us on the map! Music, Art, and local specials to be announced…….

About Us:
Swift Mile, an urban/suburban street festival, hosted along Swift in the 13- 15th blocks, was developed through a partnership with Dare to Dabble, NKC Business Council, the City of North Kansas City and NKC Now, who hosted 2015’s Pint Path.

Swift Mile’s aspiration is to bring awareness to a major north-south corridor and bike route that connects our suburban area to the urban district resting in the shadows of downtown Kansas City. Swift belongs to an emerging community within NKC that is experiencing a regeneration of creative entreprenurial business. New development as well as revitalization of old manufacturing and warehouse spaces can be seen through out our city. Wanting to continue the visual transformation of our landscape, we wish to gain momentum and funding for: permanent public art installations, as well as to bring the b-cycle program to North Kansas City.

Exhibiting public art along Swift invites the exploration of this changing neighborhood. Art installations and continued beautification of Swift  highlights the potential for furthur grassroots growth and development as a retail, entertainment and arts district.  Swift, an already designated bike route connecting Downtown Kansas City to the Northland, is an established and popular cyclist route. On any given day cyclist can be seen taking advantage of the designated bike lanes and slower traffic found on Swift. Bringing B-cycles, bike sharing, to North Kansas City would connect our city to already established entertainment districts as well as bring patroons of those districts to us. B-cycles stations can be found through out downtown Kansas City and currently extend all the way to the Brookside neighborhood. Establishing them in North Kansas City would help redefine our community as a accessible and connected culture of active transportation to Kansas City’s many transportation developments.


Community Kick-off Paint Party

Our community paint party was a success! Paintings will be on display through out North Kansas City to help promote this years festival. Want a painting in your establishment? Send us a message, as we are currently finding adoptive homes for these guys.
