Arts and Culture There’s no place like Kansas for cultural events, museums and art of all kinds. What’s more, evenings come alive here, with the best in music, theater, dance and entertainment hot spots. Art museums and smaller galleries dot the state celebrating local art and culture. There’s always a concert to attend, including the spectacular Symphony in the Flint Hills and other classical options, the Walnut Valley Festival in Winfield (a huge acoustic music festival featuring premiere bluegrass artists), several country music festivals and Kansas City’s famous jazz shows. The performing arts are important in communities across Kansas, ranging from national touring companies to outstanding community theater.
