Unleash Your Inner Artist at the Great Plains Art and Music Festival 2023

Get ready for an unforgettable experience at the Second Annual Great Plains Art and Music Festival, happening at Sesquicentennial Point in Lawrence, Kansas on Saturday, September 30th, 2023! 🎨🎶

🎨 Dive into a realm of imagination as you explore artist booths brimming with awe-inspiring talent. 🖌️
🍽️ Treat yourself to a feast of flavors from the food trucks, and 
🛒explore a world of exclusive finds at the handmade vendor booths.

Set against the breathtaking backdrop of Sesquicentennial Point, with its natural amphitheater overlooking Clinton Lake and valleys, this event promises an unmatched setting that will elevate your festival experience.

The event kicks off at 8 AM, including live music, complimentary access to the food truck, art, and handmade vendor marketplace until 1 PM. Throughout the day, there will be continuous performances, leading into the transition to a paid music festival after 1 PM. To secure your spot, grab your tickets early — wristbands are available at $25 in advance or $35 on the event day. Opt for the VIP package at $60, which comes with a folding chair, VIP tent access, festival T-shirt, and more. If you arrive before 1 PM, you can seamlessly stay for the transition into the paid music festival without any interruption. Do remember that after 4 o'clock, a wristband may be required to access the audience area. Bring a picnic blanket and camping chairs and join us at the fest. Kids 14 and under are free! 

With over 50 vendors and more than 80 performers, this grassroots, community art and music festival is a celebration of the region's vibrant creative spirit. Your support is crucial in making this festival a self-sustaining success. Currently driven by the passion of a few, your contribution will help us build this event into something truly remarkable.
