The Kansas Sampler Festival had its last run in 2017, but to replace it is the Big Kansas Road Trip.
From May 3 to May 6 2018, in three counties: Barber, (Hardtner, Hazelton, Isabel, Kiowa, Medicine Lodge, Sharon and Sun City); Comanche (Coldwater, Protection and Wilmore) and Kiowa (Greensburg, Haviland and Mullinville), the red carpet is rolled out for visitors with events and deals at local restaurants and stores.
From the website with details on the event: WHAT IF…
…people who have never been to your towns and countryside before fall in love with what rural communities offer?
…the charm of the unexpected inspires people to get hooked on exploring all over the state?
…they are a thoughtful audience, spend money, and tell everyone about their experience?It could all be a really good thing.
All communities have to do is be the best
they can be at being themselves.
