Kansas City Star: After 2 years online, Big Slick Celebrity Weekend to return in person to Kansas City

By Sharon Hoffmann

For two years in a row, the pandemic forced Big Slick Celebrity Weekend to go online only. 

But this year they’re back, in person, for two days of events in June to raise money for the Cancer Center at Children’s Mercy, organizers announced Wednesday. 

The hometown hosts — Paul Rudd, Jason Sudeikis, Rob Riggle, Eric Stonestreet and David Koechner — will once again be joined in Kansas City by celebrity guests, to be announced this spring.

Tickets will go on sale in the spring, with more details announced then. Previous celebrity guests have included Selena Gomez, Will Ferrell, Jon Hamm and Al Roker, plus some other famous Kansas Citians like Heidi Gardner, David Dastmalchian and David Cook. 

This will be Big Slick’s 13th year. The event has donated over $13 million to Children’s Mercy.
