The Kansas Literacy Festival is a three-day-long community event that uses art as a catalyst to inspire a lifelong love of reading. The festival provides literacy enrichment to Kansas Youth through targeted programs, events, and activities that encourage early learning, family engagement, and access to books.

80% of a child's brain is formed between birth and age 3.

More than 1 in 3 American children start kindergarten without the skills they need to learn to read.

Reading, rhyming, singing, and talking influences literacy and language development.

Kansas Literacy Festival Mission

To ignite excitement in Kansas students to read and write, while mobilizing communities of teachers, artists, reading specialists, administrators, and families to fight for equity in children’s literacy.
