Sharing is caring!

We are really excited about the big plans Wichita has for the newly-renovated Naftzger Park, but unfortunately the grand opening event scheduled for Thursday has been postponed. Here’s the official press release:

Due to ongoing concerns…the City has made the determination to postpone the Naftzger Park and Evergy Pavilion Grand Opening Celebration previously planned for at 5 p.m. tonight, March 12.

A new date will be announced in the near future.

The City’s top priority is the health and well-being of Wichita residents. A determination on whether to hold or postpone future events will be made and announced by the end of the week.

The City also announced it on Facebook today:

Due to ongoing concerns… the City has made the determination to postpone the Naftzger Park and Evergy Pavilion Grand Opening Celebration planned for tonight.

Naftzger Park was closed last year for a big renovation and now it’s close to reopening! 

In fact, the grand opening of the newly renovated Naftzger Park is scheduled for Thursday, March 12. 

It will be a big to-do with the Mayor and other officials, Brett Harris as the MC, live music from the band Annie Up, food trucks, and more. 

Evergy will be handing out swag while it lasts. 

The Naftzger Park Grand Opening event will be held from 5 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. that Thursday evening.

Weather permitting, they’ll end the evening with fireworks!

I’ve seen that a lot of events are already being planned for the new Naftzger Park, so keep an eye out for those in the weeks ahead. 

For more information about the grand opening, visit the Facebook event page. And speaking of weather, make sure you double-check that link ahead of time to ensure that this outdoor event will still be happening!
