Kansas Sampler Festival this Weekend in Winfield

A spring festival that highlights Kansas products, music, food and places is opening this weekend.

The Wichita Eagle reports that the Kansas Sampler Festival is planned for Saturday and Sunday at Winfield’s Island Park.

It includes more than 300 exhibitors from 150 communities.

A shift in focus is planned. Starting in 2018, the foundation that promotes the festival plans to create an annual Kansas Road Trip that will encourage exploration of specific regions of the state.
