Kansas State Fair

“Our state fair is a great state fair;
Don’t miss it, don’t even be late!
It’s dollars to donuts that our state fair
Is the best state fair in our state!”

OK, OK... that song by Rogers & Hammerstein is about the Iowa State Fair but heck, it rings true in Kansas as well!

From September 11-20, 2009 visitors at the State Fair in Hutchinson will have an opportunity to be entertained, engaged, enlightened, enthralled and "enlarged" by the sights, sounds, experiences and great food around them.

Below are some links to information on the upcoming State Fair as well as some interesting resources on State Fair trivia and history.
