Experience: Coffee and Donut Festival KC
Written by: Allison Swan
The Coffee and Donut Festival is coming to the Overland Park Convention Center on September 1st! The event name says it all--it's going to be a fun day full of delicious donuts and lots of caffeine.
At this sweet festival where all the fried, sugary dough meets smooth roasted brews, you can enjoy activities all afternoon, with contests including the best coffee and donut award, people's choice awards, donut queen contest, and donuts of glory donut eating contest. Capture the moment by taking a photo with Mr. Donut or at their photo booth. Play games like shuffleboard, dodgeball, donut hole putt putt, sumo wrestling, foosball, jelly donut wrestling, and minute to win it games for prizes from local coffee and donut shops. The group Midbest will be performing their donut song titled “Dat Dough Tho” and much more. This event is for the whole family—kids activities include donut coloring, face painting, donut toss, and much more. Everyone loves donuts, but if you’re not a coffee drinker, there will also be mimosas and Bloody Mary’s if that’s more your style!
