The booking calendar for the 1861 Club opened on Feb. 1 for Fall 2024 (October – December) and 2025 events.
The 1861 Club is the new event venue currently being built by the Kansas Fairgrounds Foundation on the Kansas State Fairgrounds. This beautiful nearly 15,000 sq. ft. facility will have 30’ tall wood ceilings, exposed heavy timber luminant framing with stone accents throughout. The 1861 Club – a Space as Grand as Your Dreams will serve a multitude of purposes throughout the year. The building has a 6,600 sq. ft. main banquet room, plus three small conference rooms which are available for breakout sessions or the bridal party.
The 1861 Club will be operated and managed by the Kansas Fairgrounds Foundation, with the Foundation handling the bookings for the venue. During the Kansas State Fair, the venue will be a climate-controlled food, beverage and entertainment venue, featuring fast fine dining for those fair patrons looking for an excitingly new and entertaining Fair experience. Following the Fair, the 1861 Club will transform into a high-quality event venue specializing in that unique venue experience with superior service and audio-visual capabilities to ensure your wedding, corporate or industry event is precisely what you are hoping it will be.
