The Platte City Friends of the Arts began in 1999 with a small concert at Snow Creek. Fast forward to 2018 and this small group provides so much for Platte County, including sponsoring the Platte City Community Band and offering Fine Arts Scholarships to college-bound Platte County Seniors.
In addition to producing the Summer Concert series, PCFA also sponsor student and adult art shows throughout the year.
Outdoor concerts began at Riverview Park, then moved to Platte Ridge Park for a few years through 2009 when it was new.
Summer music concerts have been on the courthouse lawn since 2010. “These concerts are just another way that Main Street is the community’s meeting place. Bringing friends and families together to enjoy some great music is our goal,” said Dori Thomas, president, Platte City Friends of the Arts.
The final 2021 concert on Aug.14 will feature Cherry Bomb.
