KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A few hometown heroes will be part of the biggest 2023 Big Slick Celebrity Weekend ever.
Over the past week and a half, organizers have announced dozens of stars joining hosts David Koechner, Jason Sudeikis, Paul Rudd, Heidi Gardner, Eric Stonestreet and Rob Riggle for the 14th annual event.
On Friday, Big Slick said Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes, tight end Travis Kelce, center Creed Humphrey, and punter Dustin Colquitt are joining the star-studded fun next week.
This isn’t the first time Mahomes and Kelce have joined Big Slick, but for various reasons, including the COVID-19 pandemic, they haven’t been in attendance since 2019. Colquitt has also been a celebrity guest before as well.
The four Chiefs stars are sure to add a few homers to the Big Slick Celebrity Classic softball game at Kauffman Stadium.

The weekend includes the Big Slick softball game at Kauffman Stadium on Friday, June 2. Anyone with a ticket to the Royals game can watch the celebrity softball game before the pros take the field.
The Big Slick Party & Show at T-Mobile Center is scheduled for Saturday, June 3. Tickets start at $75 and are on sale.
Even if you can’t attend in person, there’s still a way to support Children’s Mercy and get some impressive merchandise and other items.
Big Slick just kicked off its online auction where fans can bid on items like tickets to late night TV shows, a custom signed Big Slick guitar, a movie premiere with Dastmalchian and more.
