You have known us in the last 5 years as the Longview Art & World Music Festival and we are proud to announce we are now known as the Summit Art Festival.
There are many exciting new changes happening this year…we have a new name, new branding and new location.
- Location is the biggest change
Summit Art Festival will be held in Historic Downtown Lee’s Summit, MO.
Located less than 5 miles from our previous location the New Longview Business district you will now find our event nestled in the Central Business District of Lee’s Summit. We are excited to partner with the Downtown Lee’s Summit organization to put on our 6th Annual event.
With a population of almost 94,000 people and land area of 65 square miles, Lee’s Summit, Missouri, is the sixth largest city in the state. Despite a rapid growth spurt in the past 25 years, Downtown Lee’s Summit has remained the heart of the community.
Historic Downtown Lee’s Summit is known for its many locally owned shops, boutiques, fabulous restaurants and vibrant nightlife. New residential lofts and adjacent historic neighborhoods also make Downtown Lee’s Summit an excellent place to call home. A unique combination of preservation of history and place, with progressive attitudes and entrepreneurship, make Downtown Lee’s Summit the perfect location for our fine art event.
- New name and branding
We made the decision to change from the Longview Art & World Music Festival to Summit Art Festival to emphasize our focus on the fine art component of the event.
