title

Chick Events is returning to downtown Olathe on April 27th and April 28th bringing their unique pop-up marketplace featuring one of a kind, handcrafted goods from local makers throughout the metro and surrounding area.                     Chick Events is a very reputable, established event group that has hosted over a dozen events in KS and MO since their inception in 2014, with the goal to connect local and regional makers and small business owners with those who love to shop small. They combine a love for unique products, food, drinks, music, and a passion for supporting the maker community to bring fun, unique events to the Kansas City market.                                                                                      Chick Events is requesting the City to allow alcohol to be purchased and consumed on public property within the secure, designated 24’x35’ beer garden.   Chick Events hosted the same event in Downtown Olathe in 2018, with no issues reported. Unlike last year, alcohol sales and consumption will only occur within a designated beer garden for the 2019 Spring Chick Event.                       These events directly align with the City’s priority to revitalize and reinvest in Downtown. These types of community and cultural gatherings are vital to attracting people, encouraging social interaction, and building memories in Downtown. Not only do community events and programming foster civic pride, but they also activate Downtown Olathe and supports the surrounding small businesses.                                                                                                                                                                                               Pursuant to state law, the City may issue a temporary permit to allow alcohol to be possessed and consumed on public property, including streets and sidewalks, if the City closes the streets to vehicular traffic.  The resolution to approve this permit is Attachment A.  The resolution includes a map of the beer garden where liquor will be allowed.  Approval of this resolution is one step required to allow alcohol to be sold at the event.  Individual liquor license holders are still required to obtain state licenses, in addition to this City license.  The resolution requires that attendees comply with all alcohol laws of the City and State.  .
