The Great Plains Transportation Museum will be hosting the second annual Kansas Railfest on September 16, 2017.

Kansas Railfest will feature music, artists, shopping, food, activities for young and old, and of course – TRAINS!

The event will take place at the combined sites of the Great Plains Transportation Museum and Union Station, on each side of the 700 block of East Douglas in DOWNTOWN WICHITA.

Admission is only $10.00 for age 13 and over. Kids 12 and under are free!

Event proceeds will go toward helping the museum’s mission – to preserve and convey the unique history of railroading in the Great Plains through acquisition, restoration, research, exhibition, and education.

More information can be found at:

The event will take place at street level and the upper track level. The exterior site is paved. There is no operating elevator to the upper track level of the grounds, but we will accomodate those in need of assistance with transportation between levels.

More details to be added as our program develops, including musical groups and other artists, food and drinks available, where to buy admission tickets/wristbands, and the possibility of expanding the hours.

Stay tuned!
