Kansas Day

Kansas became a state on January 29, 1861.

When: January 29
Where: American Legion Hall, Bird City, Kansas
Highlights: The day's activities include displays, potluck luncheons and special programs.

Fun Facts: Only in the state capital has Kansas Day been celebrated longer.

History: The first anniversary of statehood celebrated in Cheyenne County was sponsored by the Mothers' Circle of the Methodist Church in Bird City, on January 29, 1930. In 1935 a set of by-laws was accepted by the Kansas Day organization. The purpose of the organization is to promote and maintain proper observance of Kansas Day in Cheyenne County. There has only been one occasion when the Kansas Day celebration was not held: on January 29, 1958 a blizzard made it impossible to hold the celebration.

Sponsors: The event is planned by committee members of Kansas Day Association.
