Rise - A Rooftop Crawl - 2019 Theme: All Around The World

Saturday, August 24th 2019

We are excited to announce the fifth annual RISE Rooftop Crawl that will be more exclusive and better than ever!

RISE is a unique event where attendees explore private rooftops, featuring elaborately themed parties, in the Crossroads Arts District. Attendees enjoy an incredible celebration with food, drinks, live entertainment and interactive experiences as they travel from rooftop to rooftop, ending the night with an epic block party in front of the BBBS building on Walnut Street.

RISE tickets will only be available by purchasing a sponsorship package. Please see information regarding sponsorship opportunities by contacting Tiffany Stuck at tiffany@bbbskc.org or 816-777-2872 for details.

Your RISE experience will include food tokens that may be used at a variety of incredible food trucks, available to attendees throughout the evening. On each rooftop, you'll also enjoy festival themed light appetizers, beer, wine and signature drinks. Guests can also expect free parking, a finale performance, and a block party.
