Springfield, Missouri is a happening, not-so-small city where we get to enjoy one of the best communities in the Midwest. Because of this, Springfield hosts the coolest events all around town. There is always something for us to do, indoors and out.
Girls Night Paint Night!
There are times when I wish I was a lot more talented than I am, especially when it comes to mastering the art of painting. Needless to say, I am not a good artist. Fortunately for all of us who have two wrong hands when we want to create beautiful paintings, we can go to our local Paint Nite and learn how to do what we thought was impossible. We all have to start somewhere, right?
So, this has become a bit of a sensation, and we at WeDames are loving it. Paint Nite is held at multiple different bars and restaurants, such as Patton Alley Pub in downtown Springfield, Mo, which provides an amazing atmosphere for a fun girls night out. Who doesn’t love sitting next to their BFF, gabbing and giggling while sipping on their favorite cocktails, all the while having a blast creating beautiful take-home art? The premise is wonderful and we at WeDames give it a huge thumbs up on our creative fun scale.
Fun for the Family At The Farmer’s Park
It’s SUMMER!!!!!!! Finally, it’s summer and we love that we can zip over to the park for some fun family play time. Watching our kids zip down slides with huge smiles on their faces, or swing on swings laughing to the clear blue skies, heads tipped back and loving every moment of it has to be the best thing ever. We also love to BBQ, play in the water and all while listening to killer music. Why not combine all of those things into one amazingly fun, kid-friendly event.
Parties in the Park is a free event which happens every Thursday from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Farmer’s Park. The kids run around playing together while the community of fun-loving people watch with enjoyment as they sway back and forth the slew of fantastic musician’s, (which changes every week), play all your favorite songs. Rich with local vendors, Parties in the Park is the perfect way to experience what our local community has to offer. Fun for the whole family is music to our ears and we hope to see you and yours there for some fun under the sun!

First Friday Art Walk
This amazing event happens every 1st Friday of the month at multiple galleries and restaurants in downtown Springfield. Local artists debut their fantastic work, of all different types, created by some of Springfield’s finest up and coming artists. This also happens to be the best way to discover countless places tucked away in our favorite on-the-rise area. Step into Fresh Gallery, where the wood work is beautiful and the art, even better. Want to explore the new, fabulous Hotel Vandivort? Stop in and take a selfie in their famed “perfectly lit” bottom floor bathroom after you peruse their wine selection and check out their featured artist. Whatever the desire or motivation, find your new favorite place to visit during you First Friday Art Walk adventure.
