Kansas Sneaker Fest heads to Friends University on March 30

Sneakerheads, mark it down. March 30. Kansas Sneaker Fest, which has been a huge hit over the years, is back on Saturday, March 30.

The biggest event in town for sneakers will be at the Friends University Garvey Center from noon to 5 p.m.

It’ll celebrate the sneaker culture like no other event in town. The convention for all things sneakers is a unique marketplace for sneaker enthusiasts to buy, sell, and trade sneakers among each other. The event features vendors selling and displaying the latest and most sought after sneakers, highly coveted vintage clothing, streetwear brands and accessories.

It’s not just sneakers either, there will be some events for people to participate in, such as the 2024 Kansas Sneaker Free Throw Contest sponsored by online sneaker community/store RARE Demands. Attendees can sign up for $20 to get the opportunity to compete for the chance to win best free throw shooter at Kansas Sneaker Fest and win some prizes.

The event, which started in 2011, was created by Nnanna Okpara, Owner & Director of Festive ICT, an event production company in Wichita that produces events such as Wichita Taco Fest, Shop & Grub, Margaritas &. Mojitos and more.

Kansas Sneaker Fest

Kansas Sneaker Fest also includes a local sock drive that has been active for over a decade. Socks and undergarments are the most requested items from shelters across the country. Festive ICT uses this platform to assist and support local shelters via the sock drive. Attendees are asked to donate 3 pairs of new socks in exchange for a ticket that allows them to enter a raffle for a highly coveted pair of sneakers. All socks collected are donated to a local shelter in the Wichita area. The Sock drive is sponsored by local sneaker shop All Things Hype.

Admission to the event is as follows:
Single Entry + Event Day Price = $15
Me & My Homie – 2 for $20 (admits 2 people)
VIP – $50

Vendor tables and tickets are now available at www.kansassneakerfest.com. For all inquiries, please contact Festive ICT Director Nnanna Okpara at nnanna@festiveict.com.
