An event so nice, we’re doin’ it twice–this time in TOPEKA!

Topeka Feastival isn’t just a ticket to the best food and drink pop-up in town. It’s a ticket to making a difference. Hunger is a behemoth of a problem for thousands in our region every day. Join in and help us devour the beast – after all, it takes a village to feed a city.
