Club KC extended to Aug. 11, opens at third location
Due to popular demand, the City of Kansas City, Mo.’s Club KC program has been extended until Saturday, Aug. 11 and will now take place at three community centers.
Youth in middle school are invited to the Club KC at Tony Aguirre Community Center, 2050 W. Pennway Terrace, on Saturdays from 7-11 p.m. or Gregg/Klice Community Center, 1600 John “Buck” O’Neil Way, on Fridays and Saturdays from 6-11 p.m. Youth in high school are invited to the Club KC at Brush Creek Community Center, 3801 Emanuel Cleaver II Blvd., on Fridays and Saturdays from 7 p.m. to midnight.
“Mayor's Nights are activities designed by Kansas City's youth for Kansas City's youth. We asked them what they wanted, and more importantly we listened. Following their lead is paying off. Midway through the summer, I am very happy to say the centers are full late into the night and young people are having a great time. Hundreds are gathering each weekend at Club KC to dance, swim and play — safely. I couldn't be more proud of them or the success, so far, of the initiative,” said Mayor Sly James. "Club KC is frosty, even in this heat!"
Club KC, a part of the Mayor’s Nights initiative, opened June 15 and has provided more than 3,000 middle school-aged and high school-aged youth with free, fun and safe weekend nightlife activities this summer, such as swim parties, live DJs, refreshments, open mic, three-on-three basketball tournaments and more.
ID is required for admission. Security is provided.
