2018 Spring Chick Event
Downtown Olathe, Kansas
Support our #SHOPLOCAL and #SHOPSMALL mission this spring at the 3rd Annual Spring Chick Event. We are popping up our outdoor festival in Downtown Olathe (Cherry & Park Streets). The Spring Chick Event will feature over 100 local vendors, food trucks, DIY classes and more. Celebrate the local arts with handmade goods, artisan foods and shop for your favorite spring fashions from local boutiques and shops.
Tickets: $5 (children 12 and under are free)
Non-profit partner: Make-A-Wish Missouri
May 19 - 20, 2018
September 6 - 8, 2018
Find us in booth #144, in front of the Post Office on Chestnut Street!
Downtown Olathe will soon fill with crowds of people, drawn by the smell of delicious food, the bright lights of carnival rides and the sound of live music. Johnson County Old Settlers is set to return for its 118th year on Sept. 8, 9 and 10.
The three-day festival draws nearly 200,000 people every year. It includes a craft show, carnival, parade and three nights of live music.
“Anybody that has grown up in Olathe knows what Old Settlers is about,” Reitmeyer said. “There are so many people that use Old Settlers as a focal point for their family reunions and their class reunions, so it’s really touted as a family event.”
When it comes to food, one of the biggest draws by far at Old Settlers is the grange pup, a hot dog wrapped in a pancake-type batter.
One year, the festival sold nearly 25,000 grange pups in three days. The fried treat with a cult-like following is sold by one of the 25 nonprofit groups that operate the food booths at the festival.
“We do that for a reason,” volunteer Jay Lang said. “That money those groups raise will stay in our community. This way there is an extra benefit to the community. For most of these organizations, this is the largest fundraiser they do.”
The festival is organized every year by the Johnson County Old Settlers Association, a nonprofit organization. And while the money made from the event doesn’t go directly back to the city, it does make a significant economic impact.
The festival features around 120 arts and crafts vendors and 97 commercial vendors. There will be live music each night of the festival.
Then of course, there’s the carnival.
On Saturday, the largest parade in Kansas takes place in downtown Olathe at 10 a.m.
More than 60,000 people typically turn out for the event, which features 160 parade entries.
If it all sounds like a bunch of good old-fashioned fun, then you would be right. That’s what organizers say is their goal every year. They want a family-friendly festival where you would be comfortable taking your newborn or your grandmother.
Organizers say they are trying to carry on the family atmosphere that was started way back in 1898, when residents first started gathering downtown for a community picnic that included a band, bubble gum blowing contests, watermelon seed spitting contests and sack races.
Though the events may have changed over the years, the sense of community that the Old Settlers festival brings to Olathe has not. Volunteers say that’s what keeps bringing them back year after year to help put on the event.

Find us on West Grand, Booth #417
It's our favorite one day show in the town of Hillsboro, Kansas. They basically shut the down the town for this event. One of the biggest shows we attend. Back to back tents up and down the streets.

This will be our 5th year of doing this show! It's another of our fun shows we attend. Lots of tents and crafters in the heart of the Ozarks! The food trucks offer a wide variety of food and are all very tasty! We are in the same location on Row 13, Booth 1, right across from the "fudge guy" and the next to the "pasta guy".
October 13 - 14, 2018
This Arts and Crafts (as the locals call it) is just 9 miles South of our place. We call it the "Little Ozarks". One of the reasons we moved to this area is because of the beauty of the countryside. There are rolling hills, lots of trees and the friendliest people we have ever met. I think this year we will have a beautiful display of the Maple trees turning color. Take the drive down Hwy 7 and enjoy the scenic drive, park in the one of the bus pick up locations and come enjoy the day! There are lots of crafters at this show and it is held on the County Fairgrounds. Sheds, tents, and barns are packed full of all kinds of talented crafters. The food is also really good, food trucks, the boy scouts fundraiser, various local churches put out a tasty breakfast and lunch. My favorite is the Walking Tacos, Rubens and the Fancy Cupcakes, which is next to the homemade ice cream, which is directly across from us on the main walkway. You can't miss us and in case you do, just ask we are well known!
The Maple Leaf Festival has something for everyone. It's one of the biggest events in the KC surrounding area with 350 plus arts and crafts booths. It is a college town and is all about family. Fall colorful trees, Quilt Show, Train Rides, Kid Rides, Tours, Maple Leaf 5K and a Parade and are all about celebrating small town. Come have a sample of our new candied pickle. We will be at our usual location near 8th and High Street. Our Candied Jalapeno banner will be flying high!
October 27th - 28th
There is nothing I don't love about Kimmswick's Apple Butter Festival! If you've never been to Kimmswick - GO! It's a teeny tiny town of its own. It's probably only four blocks squared and it's filled cute shop after cute shop! Lots of locally made goods, a tea and spice shop and, of course, the famous Blue Owl (I would definitely encourage you to stop by and get a slice of cheesecake). Kimmswick feels similar to Historic St. Charles, but Kimmswick is even simpler and smaller - and in such an endearing way!
During the festival, every street is lined with booths and tents. There's all the usually crafty things you see for sale. And, of course, apple butter! But lawn and holiday decorations seem to be particularly popular here. There's also all the usual food - gyros, funnel cakes, ribbon chips, sausages and more!
We promised to come back and we are! This is our second year at the festival and we had such fun last year introducing our candied jalapeños to a new area. We look forward to seeing our new Pepper Fans , we have been shipping to the St. Louis area quite a bit this last year. So hopefully, they will all stock up now that they know how tasty our peppers are!

Chick Events hatched in 2014, bringing a pop-up handmade & vintage event concept to Johnson County. Since then, they have hosted over a dozen events in KS and MO including the Handmade & Vintage, Artisan & Holiday events. Their goal is to connect local and regional makers and small business owners with those who love to #shopsmall. At their events you get to meet the maker and learn about their passion, how they got started and you get to support a small business. You also get one of a kind handcrafted goods you often can’t find anywhere else! They combine our love for unique products, food, drinks, music and our passion for supporting the maker community to bring fun, unique events to the Kansas City market.
