  • Hutchinson - Weird, wild and wonderful, the Kansas State Fair never gets old! Its world-class Midway, blue-ribbon animals and family-friendly activities make it pure Americana – an event not to be missed. Party with your pals and hear the hottest performers at the U.S. Cellular Grandstand. Tour the many agricultural and educational displays. Win prizes. Brave heart-pounding carnival rides. Sample culinary delights. Enormous vegetables, odd artifacts, homemade crafts and the infamous butter sculpture provide something for everyone. Scheduled for Sept. 7-16, 2012 – the 100th official Kansas State Fair – the event is the largest in the state of Kansas with crowds numbering more than 350,000. The newly renovated fairgrounds are in centrally located Hutchinson, Kansas. Plan to join Kansans from across the state.
