On January 29, 2021 Kansas will celebrate its 160th birthday! The year 2021 is also the bicentennial of the Santa Fe Trail. Traditionally, the Kansas Historical Society offers Kansas Day events for schools and the public at the Kansas Museum of History, the Capitol, and several historic sites. While it is not possible to celebrate in person this January, resources are being made available to help you create your own Kansas Day experience.
Beginning on December 1, activities, lessons, and videos will be available at kshs.org/Kansas Day in the Classroom. More resources will be added throughout December and January so be sure to check back often.
