It's that time again: When more than 250,000 people swarm Country Club Plaza for food, music, fun, and--naturally--lots of art of all kinds.

Going strong since 1932, the Plaza Art Fair features 240 artists, three live music stages and about two dozen food vendors.

3 new things this year:

  1. St. Paul’s Episcopal Day School is hosting this year’s Kids Art Experience, an interactive workshop located on Broadway, across the street from The Apple Store. All ages are welcome.
  2. The 2015 Plaza Art Fair showcase artist is Beth Bojarski of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, booth 242. Beth’s medium is oil paints on all types of wood surfaces.
  3. ArtsKC – Regional Arts Council and Saint Luke’s Health System have partnered to present Experience ArtsKC – a “Passport to the Arts” in Kansas City. Fair-goers are encouraged to grab a passport and visit 26 local arts organizations.
