1861 Club Progress Updates

May 2024

Progress continues on the site of the 1861 Club located on the Kansas State Fairgrounds.   During the month of April, the construction crews did an incredible job of moving forward.   The framing is complete, the decorative stone is in place and much of the building is enclosed. 

The Grand Opening of the 1861 Club is scheduled for Friday, September 6, which is also the opening day of the 2024 Kansas State Fair. It promises to be an exciting and fun-filled day.  During the 10 days of the Fair, the 1861 Club will be open to the public as a food, beverage, and entertainment venue.   

Non-Fair we are booking dates for weddings and special events beginning in Fall 2024.
