Kansas Day Celebration at Wichita-Sedgwick County Historical Museum

Happy birthday, Kansas!

Kansas became a state on January 29, 1861, and every year around this time we like to celebrate with free or inexpensive Kansas Day events in and around Wichita. 

This year, the Wichita-Sedgwick County Historical Museum will host a Kansas Day event on Saturday, January 29, 2022. 

It will be a virtual event beginning at 2 p.m. with cowboy poets and a musical jamboree of local musicians. “A Kansas Day Celebration in Song” will be presented by Orin Friesen and a cavalcade of folk and cowboy collaborators.

  • Cowboy poets Scott Wiswell and Ron Wilson
  • Stu Stuart and Orin Friesen of the Diamond W Wranglers
  • Jesse Friesen of the Flying W Wranglers
  • Karen and Richard Crowson
  • Ranger Stan Greet of the Home Rangers
  • 3 Trails West
  • Annie Wilson
  • Jeff Davidson
  • Scott Tonelson
