Our picks for fun in Wichita this weekend (9/21 – 9/23)

If you check out our calendar page, we’ve selected some fun things for you to do this weekend.

We’ve hand selected four events we will be at over the course of the weekend and think you would enjoy as well. Come enjoy some hopefully nice weather and experience more of what this city has to offer!

Versus: A Live Art Battle
9/21 – Starts at 6:30pm

Step up ringside as 36 of the area’s most talented artists create masterpieces in 20 minutes. That’s right. This year’s competition is triple the action with three simultaneous rounds of painting, sculpting and culinary art – all in our beautiful new space on Rock Road. The food, drinks and creative inspiration won’t tap out at this event. I assisted in gathering many of the culinary competitors and am really excited to see what dishes they come up with!

2018 Wagonmasters Downtown Chili Cook Off
9/22 – 12pm – 3pm

The 35th Annual Wichita Wagonmasters Downtown Chili-Cookoff is the most fun you can have for $5 while doing good for the community. Proceeds go the Good Life Grant to help local charities! We even have a special Charity Category where charities can win even more money! So come support your charity, your community, and the Wagonmasters; but most importantly, come have FUN!  This is an event I’ve participated in as a judge, a cook and an attendee. I’ve done it all and this year will be going as a spectator and walking among all the chili fans sampling different chili.

Open Streets ICT
9/23 – 12pm – 5pm

Open Streets ICT brings Wichitans of all ages and fitness levels together for an active, fun, community – building afternoon on Wichita’s iconic Douglas Avenue. Closing four miles of Douglas to traffic, College Hill to the historic Delano, and opens the street for biking, walking, running, live music and dancing, entertainment, food, art, yoga, and more.

I missed out on this event last year and swore to myself that if they do it again, I’ll be there.
