Ballet of Wichita Free Performances in the Park

One of my favorite free events in Wichita every  year is back for Fall 2022. Bring blankets and lawn chairs and enjoy the FREE Wichita Ballet in the Park again this year!

The Wichita Ballet will perform a Tom Sawyer at various parks in and around Wichita.

Ballet in the Park has been delighting audiences for almost 30 years. The event is FREE, open to the public, and is a 45-minute performance. Ballet in the Park is held in parks in Wichita and surrounding areas, including Augusta and Mulvane, featuring a different production every year. Our Ballet in the Park series has delighted thousands of attendees during the summer and fall over the years.

Past productions of Ballet in the Park include Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella, Little Mermaid, Wizard of Oz, Alice in Wonderland, Snow White, Peter and the Wolf and Prairie Tales. It’s a relaxed and casual atmosphere where those in attendance can meet and mingle with the dancers after the show!
