Congratulations to Brown, Doniphan and Nemaha counties for hosting the third-annual Big Kansas Road Trip, May 6-9, 2021.  It was a rousing success and visitors were overwhelmed by their hospitality and the hundreds of things to experience. We know visitors will be coming here and returning for years to come. Thank you to the host counties and communities. You outdid yourself!


In a way, it's about pie.

Let us explain.


You can tell people about a good piece of made-from-scratch pie but there's nothing like actually smelling the aroma of it and taking that first bite and making swirls with the filling that drips on the plate and mixing it with the little pieces of sugary crust. Eating a pie in the location it's made is priceless. There is nothing like being there.

The Big Kansas Road Trip is designed to turn people on to exploring by doing it and to do it in a way that will help sustain our communities. 

Kansas communities are bolstered by people who love to explore. 

The idea is to get people onto the back roads and into Kansas towns to actually SEE PLACES.  To actually EAT IN LOCAL CAFES and to talk to and GET TO KNOW THE LOCALS.
