For over 125 years the multi-day celebrations have included a parade, carnival, antique tractor and
cars shows and one of the
state’s largest fireworks displays.
City Hall, home to most of the city offices, has been beautifully restored and is conveniently located in the heart of Wamego’s downtown historic business district.
Just two blocks from the downtown business district, the City Park is the pride of Wamego. With its canopy of trees and meticulously landscaped grounds it is consistently rated among the top picnic spots in the state.
Beautifully restored, and completely debunking the myth that art, theatre and culture aren’t alive in smaller communities, is the Columbian Theatre. The ground floor also features rotating art and historic exhibits throughout the year.
The Wamego Country Club is a state-of-the art par 70, 18-hole course nestled among rolling hills and tree-lined fairways.
The wonderful world of Oz lives on in Wamego. The ageless tale of heart, home and adventure is celebrated at the Oz Musuem, which displays one of the largest privately owned collections of Oz memorabilia.
If it weren’t for the Kansas River flowing along the southern border of town there might not have ever been a Wamego. From the earliest residents, the Konza Indians, to today’s fishermen and paddlers the river is still a much revered part of the community.
Mentoring and educating future citizens are goals of the Wamego Public School District. The district includes two elementary schools, a middle and high school and offers a wide variety of sports and extra-curricular activities for all students.
Celebrating children everywhere, as well as standing as evidence of the volunteer spirit that thrives in Wamego, the new depot and children’s train in the City Park is ready to hit the rails.
