Happy birthday, Kansas!
Kansas became a state on January 29, 1861, and every year we find inexpensive or free Kansas Day events to celebrate.
This year, the Wichita-Sedgwick County Historical Museum will host a Kansas Day event on Sunday, January 31, 2021.
The celebration begins at 2 p.m. with a musical jamboree featuring a cavalcade of local musicians including “A Kansas Day Celebration in Song”, presented by Orin Friesen and a cavalcade of folk and cowboy collaborators, near and far referencing Kansas’ 160th anniversary as a State.
This Kansas Day celebration is free.
This year no refreshments will be served and audience size will vary based on regulations and by reservation only. Viewing will also be available on Facebook Live.
You can park in the metered spaces on the side streets near the museum or in the metered lot next to Century II.
What fun! How will you celebrate Kansas Day?
Date: Sunday, January 31, 2021
Time: 2-3 p.m.
Location: Wichita-Sedgwick County Historical Museum, 204 S. Main, Wichita, KS 67202
