Experience a Barn Tour at BarnFest 2013
Save the date: 8th Annual BarnFest October 4&5, 2013.
One of the highlights for Kansas Barn Alliance members is the time we spend together at BarnFest. This will be the 8th year that we have gathered to share barn stories, learn about ways to save our agri-landmarks and tour some pretty amazing barns that are located in Kansas.
This year BarnFest will be held in Marion County. Friday, October 4th, we will start the day with Registration at 9 am. The day is filled with speakers on various topics including barn art and quilt trails, tax credits, stone masonry, repair of a wind damaged barn and will end with a BBQ and entertainment at Marion Park & Lake.
Saturday will start at 8:30 with a light breakfast and then we will load the Marion County Tourism Bus and head off for our first barn on the tour. Then we will be served lunch at the Harvey House in Florence. Following lunch we will travel to three barns and sights of interest in the Florence and Marion area. Also, the announcement of the winner of the "Let's Get Started" Evaluation Grant will be made during BarnFest.
The registration form and additional information about the BarnFest’13 can be found at www.kansasbarnalliance.org. Registration information can also be mailed. If you get your registration in before September 15, you’ll receive an Early Birad Discount. Registration for both days includes four meals, snacks, five presentations, barn tour, tour booklet and transportation. Single day registration is also available.
