The Big Kansas Road Trip provides the public first-hand experiences in a format that feels like a tri-county open house. Each visitor creates their own plan of where and when to go to any particular place. Communities are asked to simply be good at being themselves and organizations, attractions, and businesses are invited to help the public get to know them through a variety of activities.
The event moves to a different region each year and May 5-8, 2022 will be hosted by Bourbon, Cherokee and Crawford counties in the Southeast corner of the state. Highlights for each county include the Fort Scott National Historic Site, the Gordon Parks Museum, Big Brutus, Cars on the Route, Mined Land Wildlife Area, Lincoln Park and Kiddieland, Longest sidewalk between two towns (Arma and Franklin) in the U.S., Pallucca’s Italian Market & Deli and Pittsburg State University Veterans Memorial Amphitheater. There are over 100 attractions to explore, nearly 20 events to attend and over 100 locally owned restaurants to try!
People can find current listings for events, attractions, shop stops, restaurants, lodging and other pertinent information at bigkansasroadtrip.com or they can pick up a 52-page guide at participating state visitor centers. The BKRT guide and a day program will be available in the counties during the event. Updated information and pictures are posted daily on the Big Kansas Road Trip Facebook page.
The BKRT is a project of the non-profit, Kansas Sampler Foundation, located in rural Inman. For more information contact Marci Penner, email@example.com, 620.585.2374 or 620.960.0552.
