Rise - A Rooftop Crawl - 2018 Theme: Festivals

Saturday, August 25th 2018

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

RISE is a unique event where attendees explore private rooftops, featuring elaborate 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 be available through the purchasing of a sponsorship package. Please see information regarding sponsorship opportunities by clicking here or by contacting Tiffany Bruce 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.
