A note from the founders:

Kansas City holds a special place in our hearts. We were married here and have always been drawn to the energy of this city.

We are both honored and proud to share Abbott Events with you. We’ve created Kansas City’s premier venues for weddings and corporate events for one simple reason: we want you to feel as much togetherness and purpose within these walls as we feel within this city, specifically the Crossroads Arts District.

In our properties and our personal home, we’ve always loved to entertain, and we’ve brought that vision and enthusiasm to The Abbott. So, share. Celebrate. We hope you love it here.
