The annual Kechi Fair combines good old-fashioned small town fun with live entertainment, a street dance, fireworks, and more! This year it will be held on Saturday, June 25, 2022 at the park.
A fair button covers the cost of almost everything except food and any shopping you do, of course. You can pick up your Kechi fair button at locations around town like Leekers, City Hall, or the Kechi convenience store, and you even get a discount for buying it early. The button is only $3 in advance; $5 at the gate.
This year’s Kechi Fair kicks off at 4 p.m. with an Ice Cream Social, a fishing derby, yard games, and face painting. The turtle races begin at 4:30 but it’s BYOT – Bring Your Own Turtle, lol! Then at 5 p.m. you can enter the 3-legged race or wait half an hour to participate in the egg toss.
Concessions will be available to purchase from a local Troop during the event.
The street dance will be held at F&H Parking Lot from 8-11 p.m. and will feature the band Prairie Smoke. (Gate opens at 7:30 p.m.)
The fireworks will go after sunset during the street dance.
