Explore nearby Fort Riley, and military history; grow wild with Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) accredited Sunset Zoo; delve below ground with the Flint Hills Discovery Center; surf our waves at City Pool, or golf on one of three public courses. However you like to entertain, your experiences here will be unique to Manhattan! Put on that purple and experience a Wildcat Weekend.

Traditions
  • TailgatingBring friends, family, in-laws, classmates, kids, grandkids, and anyone you can think of to tailgate outside of Bill Snyder Family Stadium on gamedays! There will be nothing but purple as far as the eye can see, and the aroma of hot dogs, burgers and brownies will fill the air. Play a game of washers or relax in a comfy chair as you start gameday off right!
  • Cat Town: Pre-game tailgating private-party style. Live music, catered food plus game-day atmosphere, just a short walk from the southwest entrance to the stadium, Cat Town is the full experience! Follow the link for tent rentals and information on how Cat Town operates.
