- On the Morning of Greater Kansas City Day Thousands of Volunteers Hit the Streets of KC -
What day is Greater Kansas City Day this Year?
Greater Kansas City Day coincides with the Monarchs home opener. May 18th, 2021 is Greater Kansas City Day!
How do I buy a flag?
On the morning of opening day, you can buy a limited edition Monarchs Pennant from volunteers throughout the Kansas City area stationed at local Hy-Vee stores. You can also see a full list of selling locations on our page: Buy a Flag.
Can I participate even if I am not in Kansas City?
Greater Kansas City Day is all about celebrating the youth of Kansas City and all things that make this community great. This year, unfortunately, flags will not be sold online. You can still donate to show your support.
Will there be newspapers to buy this year?
While we have cherished our partnership with the Kansas City Star, we will not be selling newspapers this year.
I want to volunteer, how do I get involved?
Our volunteers sell pennants at select businesses throughout the Kansas City area the morning of Opening Day. We have many local rotary clubs who participate and would love to welcome you to join them.
If you have a group of volunteers already, you can hit the streets yourself and fundraise for Greater Kansas City Day.
