Equifest Program 2021

THANK YOU With so much uncertainty and waiting during the planning phase of EquiFest of Kansas 2021, it is to be commended that everyone involved on the committee has remained patient and calm. When given the GO, everyone eagerly jumped into action to put details into place to make sure this 24th year of EquiFest of Kansas is just as great as all the years leading up to it and maybe better! We hope you enjoy your time with us and be sure to tell any of these great folks you see, Thank You or Great Job!
