The Annual EasterFest – Topeka Easter Parade and Fun Fair – began in Gage Park in 2014, then moved to Garfield Park in North Topeka in 2017. After being cancelled in 2020 and 2021 due to the pandemic, the 7th Annual EasterFest will be held Saturday, April 16, 2022 (the day before Easter), when dozens of churches, businesses, and non-profit organizations, along with thousands of fair-goers, will gather to take part in this year’s event. Go to the INFORMATION tab to download forms, or the LINKS tab to see articles, pictures and video pertaining to this or past events.
The Parade will take place on N. Kansas Avenue, beginning at 10am in the NOTO Arts District, and running right past Garfield Park. Fun Fair will take place in Garfield Park from 10am to 3pm, with Food Trucks on hand, as well as live music and other entertainment performing throughout the day, both in the park and inside Garfield Gym & the Shelterhouse. Various kid’s games and dozens of vendor booths (including face-painting, cupcake walks, petting zoo and inflatables), will be scattered around Garfield Park, and also inside the Gym and Shelterhouse. There will be something for everyone and enough to keep the whole family busy for several hours! Dance, gymnastics, health demonstrations & products and more will be featured at the Health Fair, and CupCake Walks are back! Over 70 Vendors will take part with booths in the park and inside the Shelterhouse and Gym.
