Each fall, the Wamego Chamber, in partnership with the OZ Museum, hosts OZtoberFEST in downtown Wamego! This fall festival takes on an OZ twist–Munchkinland bounce houses for the youth, Emerald City Stage hosts numerous entertainers, the OZ Market houses many handmade food and art vendors, and the Road to OZ Antique Car Show lines mainstreet with 85+ cars to peruse.
While in Wamego, check out the OZ Museum and gift shop, listen to special guest speakers connected to The Wizard of Oz movie and L. Frank Baum’s original book, The Wizard of OZ. While you are here, there is a very good chance you’ll run into many of the OZ characters wandering up and down the street!
