The 2018 Signature Event will take place at Rosalia Ranch in Butler County. Check out our Event Guide for directions to this year's site.

The Music

Experience a spectacular sunset concert by The Kansas City Symphony with special guest, singer/songwriter Aoife O'Donovan. Then stick around and swing under the prairie sky to Austin's legendary trio, Hot Club of Cowtown.

The Theme

The theme of the 2018 Signature Event is water. The event will explore the natural, cultural and structural elements of water in the Flint Hills region. Through generous support from the Kansas Humanities Council, SFH will also host a traveling Smithsonian exhibit, "WaterWays," that focuses on the connections between people and water worldwide.
