TOBY® Awards Reception & Gala
A "Roaring" Celebration
Tuesday, June 27
Kansas City Convention Center
Kansas City was founded in 1838, but the birth of the city we know today came about eighty years later, in 1920. Kansas City thrived under Prohibition and was famously known as the "Paris of the Plains" for its free-flowing liquor at Speakeasies, enviable jazz scene and embrace of new styles of dance and dress. A hundred years later, we are celebrating the most important era in Kansas City's history with a 1920s themed TOBY Awards Gala. Enjoy the spirit of the "Roaring 20s" and the "Jazz Age" and feel free to dress the part!
