Welcome to Kansas' Largest Classroom!


The Kansas State Fair has been a field trip and educational destination for generations. Join us for 10 days of hands-on learning and competition at the place that celebrates all things Kansas!

An Extension of Your Classroom

Nearly 12,000 students from preschool to high school age travel to the Kansas State Fair each year to learn about the richness of our state in a hands-on way. From the Education Center, Kansas Veterinary Birthing Center, Milking Parlor and livestock barns, to the variety of art and music programs, to pollinator gardens, Dr. Goddard's Lab and Agriland, there’s no shortage of material that can be used to effectively engage your students and spark their interest and curiosity.

We’re here to be your guide

Let the Kansas State Fair’s education team help you map out a fun and productive trip for your students – one that will animate their senses, fill them with questions, and stimulate their imaginations. Our experienced team can help you:

  • Plan and coordinate your day at the Fair—taking you through our simple check-in process, providing interactive supplies for students, and explaining our comprehensive maps to help you find your way to the fairgrounds
  • Build a lesson plan that’s right for your class, and direct you to pre-made lesson plans
