The festival is located just outside Lawrence, Kansas, a town that’s preserved its small-town feel, though it’s
grown considerably over the years. It currently has a population of roughly 82,000 people, plus 26,000 college students
attending Kansas University. The quaint downtown has shops and restaurants to visit, and is a must for visitors of the festival.
The Native American tribes living around Lawrence, Kansas certainly believed in being straightforward when they named
something. The Wakarusa River, for example, is named after their word for “butt deep,” an apt description of
how deep the river is. Nowadays, it’s getting plenty of attention from music fans visiting the spot for the four-day
Wakarusa Music Festival.
The great thing about the Wakarusa Music Festival is its perfect for both campers and families, who can enjoy the nearby,
1,500 acre Clinton Lake Park. With fishing, swimming, and even biking and trails to enjoy, there’s plenty of reason
to hang around before or after you enjoy the festival’s music. Look for concert tickets
