The Crossroads Arts District is a historic neighborhood near downtown Kansas City, Missouri. It is the city’s main art gallery district and center for the visual arts. Dozens of galleries are located in its renovated warehouses and industrial buildings. It is also home to numerous restaurants, housewares shops, architects, designers, an advertising agency, and other visual artists. The district also has several live music venues as well.

Within the Crossroads Arts District, ​Terrace on Walnut overlooks one of Kansas City’s largest events, First Friday. Arts organizations, galleries, studios, and a wide variety of local businesses feature regional and national artists as well as live entertainment on the first Friday of each month. This historic event continues to grow, with up to 10,000 attendees per event. In warm months, there are often a number of outdoor bands and performers. Occasionally, outdoor indie films are played.
