The festival kicks off on Friday night and runs through the day on Saturday. It revolves around OZ celebrities including original Munchkins from the 1939 MGM classic, descendants of L. Frank Baum, and Oz and Judy Garland historians. Activities include autograph sessions, special presentations, and a live stage production at the historic Columbian Theatre. Since 2005, OZtoberFest has attracted over 10,000 festival goers to the area. Attendees have traveled from as far as Florida and Michigan with the majority coming from Kansas. We hope to see you this year!

  3. Flint Hills FORCES II: Our Town, Our Fort, Our University

    September 27, 2014 - February 1, 2015 @ Flint Hills Discovery Center

    Flint Hills FORCES II explores the period between 1917 and 1963 when Manhattan, Fort Riley and Kansas State University intertwined to become one community encountering numerous opportunities for change in the 20th century.

    Visitors can immerse themselves in human experiences and events including: a soldier training for trench warfare during WWI, opulence of the Roaring Twenties at the Wareham Hotel, trying times of the Great Depression, a WWII forward observer's jeep and supplies and family life around the television in a 1950's Manhattan living room.

    This project is funded in part by the Kansas Humanities Council, a nonprofit culture organization promoting the understanding of the history, traditions and ideas that shape our lives and build community.
