UPDATE: Our Kansas Day event is canceled due to icy weather in the forecast. We're bummed we have to extinguish these birthday candles early, but please join us for our next Second Saturday events.
Each January marks another year of statehood for Kansas, so we're celebrating Kansas Day, a birthday party fit for our home state!
Second Saturday, Jan. 14
10 a.m. - 1 p.m.

We've got something for the whole family. Learn amazing and interesting facts about Kansas History with local historical societies and community organizations as you visit each of their booths.
