Kansas Fairgrounds Foundation

Welcome to the Kansas Fairgrounds Foundation website. We are a non-profit organization established in 2003 to raise funds for the renovation, preservation and beautification of the historical Kansas State Fair. Our board consists of enthusiastic individuals from across the state of Kansas.

The Kansas Fairgrounds Foundation allows hundreds of Kansas State Fair fans like you show their support through the Wall of Honor, Centennial Bricks, Challenge Fund, Encampment Seats and the Legacy Benches. In addition, the Foundation is selling a commemorative Kansas State Fair cookbook, featuring award winning recipes.

We are proud to hang our hats on the event that kicks off the 2016 Kansas State Fair on Thursday, September 8, named Boots and Bling. Welcoming all, come join us for a live auction featuring items from around the state of Kansas. Be prepared for a lovely dinner, drinks, and an opportunity to mingle with individuals that have the same connection with the Kansas State Fair.

If you are interested in attending Boots and Bling or in need of more information regarding the Kansas Fairgrounds Foundation, please contact Connie Schmitt at (620) 669-3610.
