RETURNING IN 2022!
The spirit of legendary aviatrix Amelia Earhart is alive and well in Atchison! Each summer the community pulls out all the stops in honor of its favorite daughter, complete with a downtown music, food and crafts fair, star-filled outdoor concert, children’s activities, awards and honors, Earhart research and literature, music on the beautiful Riverfront, aerobatic performances and the grandest of all finalés — the “Concert in the Sky” fireworks show.
There’s a reason thousands of people from across the nation — and even the world — flock to this scenic riverside town every July: We have something for everyone. Bring the kids to the historic Santa Fe Depot to ride the 12-gauge train while you explore the Atchison Rail Museum. See “Amelia” at the library before heading to beautiful Warnock Lake for LakeFest, the premier outdoor concert event in the area. Take a run around the streets of Atchison for the Amelia Earhart Fun Run sponsored by the YMCA. Browse a wonderful array of arts and crafts while sampling unique food items and listening to area musicians on Commercial Street in downtown Atchison. Bring your lawn chairs and stake out a spot early on the Riverfront, near the Lewis & Clark Pavilion, to see an exciting mix of live musicians and watch pilots perform stunts over the Missouri River before the fireworks begin.
