    Rhythm & Ribs Jazz and Blues Festival Accessibility

    A concerted effort is always made to ensure that the 2012 Rhythm & Ribs Jazz and Blues Festival is fully accessible to all. This effort includes taking into consideration all aspects of the set up and logistics for the festival grounds in order to make it easy for guests with mobility issues to enjoy a barrier free experience. This is a high priority for the American Jazz Museum as a presenting organization as well as to our partners at KC Parks and Recreation.
