05/17/18:  THE BUTTONS HAVE ARRIVED!  And they are just beautiful! Our friends at Futures Unlimited did it again - they have built a quality button and gave us a quick turn-around! And Susan Doherty's winning design just can't be beat! It's a perfect combination of the celebration of wheat and festival with our premier sponsor Cowley College shining proud, too.  So, the question is, how many do you want? Buttons are $4 each this year. Your purchase of the KWF buttons helps to show your support all the events, promotions and awards that the Chamber manages throughout the entire festival (which you know is A LOT): parade, carnival, concerts, arts & crafts festival, concession, zany contests throughout the week and much, much more!  Buttons are on sale now at the Chamber office: M-F 9-12 & 1-5. Watch for opportunities to buy at other locations coming SOON!

03/15/18:  BUTTON DESIGN REVEALED!  The 118th Kansas Wheat Festival button was designed by Susan Doherty.  She is the winner of $250 and bragging rights!  Her design will be featured on buttons, tshirts, banners and posters.  Congratulations, Susan!
