Celebrate our state’s birthday with this free Kansas Day event at the Kauffman Museum in North Newton on Saturday, January 26.
The celebration begins at 11 a.m. in the Luyken Fine Arts Center on the Bethel College campus with Pieces of the Past, a hands-on Kansas history program with Keil Hileman.
The fun continues with food trucks in the Kauffman Museum parking lot from 11:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Then from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m., free Kansas Day activities continue at the museum throughout the afternoon, including indoor crafts games for the kiddos, Kansas-themed talks in the auditorium, and outdoor activities and displays, old-fashioned schoolyard games, wagon rides, pedal-tractor race course, Native American teepee, and more.
They’ll also have a bake sale and a silent auction of antiques!
While you’re there, you can tour the restored farmhouse and view the museum exhibits. If you’ve ever been, you know that the Kauffman Museum is a wealth of Kansas history and exhibits and artifacts that makes it come alive.
