Survey: Don’t Move State Fair Date

KSAL StaffFebruary 18, 2014

A proposal to start the Kansas State Fair on Labor Day weekend wasn’t popular with people who responded to a survey.

Nearly 75 percent of 2,500 people responding to a survey conducted by University of Kansas Jayhawk Consulting either disagreed or strongly disagreed with Gov. Sam Brownback’s proposal to move the fair’s starting date. Only 11 percent agreed with the idea, with the rest neither agreed nor disagreed.

More than half of the respondents said they probably would not attend the 10-day fair if the dates changed.

Brownback had suggested that moving the date would increase attendance at the fair.

However, some fair officials said many Kansans go to state parks and other events on Labor Day, rather than to the state fair.
