Festival Food

Dine with Us to Support the Festival

Treat yourself to dinner or snacks in the park and help support the Heart of America Shakespeare Festival! The Festival receives a percentage of all food and drink sales, so you can enjoy delicious food and beverages (even adult beverages!) while helping to keep the Festival FREE for all.

Our Festival Food vendors are Roots KC, Embrace the Grape, Butterfluff Popcorn, and Tropical Sno. View mouthwatering menus below!

How to Buy Food and Drink at the Festival

When you arrive at Southmoreland Park, you may easily purchase food and beverage tickets inside the front gate. We will also have Festival volunteers available near the vendors to sell tickets. These tickets are what you will use to purchase delicious food and drink options. Each ticket’s value is $1. Every vendor’s menu will list the price of items so you know how many tickets to purchase.

We advise you to arrive in plenty of time to purchase tickets and order your favorite food and/or drink, so you can relax and enjoy the show!
