No matter the season, there are always fun things to in Wichita with kids (and without!). Welcome to Wichita’s best-kept and up-to-date event listing!

Finally – it is no longer 2020! Whether you need to entertain younger siblings while older kids are in virtual school, bundle up and explore the outdoors or find something to do locally, we’ve got you covered!

We are thrilled to bring this resource in collaboration with one of our favorite community partners: Botanica! To make planning easy, we are excited to highlight their January events below:

Two great ways to enjoy Illuminations. You can pick one or do both! All tickets must be purchased online in advance.

Storytime: Tots, Tales & Tunes

Thursdays at 10:30 a.m. $3 Member, $12 Adults, $9 Youth, includes admission to the gardens. Come to the Botanica gardens for a musical storytime that will engage your tot with rhythmic stories, fingerplays, songs and sunshine! Classes will be held outdoors, weather permitting.
