The 26th annual Kansas Sampler Festival is May 2 and 3 in Wamego and From the Land of Kansas will be there to showcase food and beverage member companies at the tent on the Sunrise Campus.
“The Kansas Sampler Festival is a fun and entertaining environment,” Stacy Mayo, director of From the Land of Kansas said. “Kansas is full of locally owned businesses that produce high-quality food and products; the festival allows us to appreciate and learn about unique products made right here in our home state.”
To encourage festival participants to seek out the From the Land of Kansas member booths throughout the festival grounds, From the Land of Kansas is hosting a passport challenge. When the passport is completed, marked by all of the participating members and validated at the From the Land of Kansas tent, participants are eligible to win a prize and will receive a $5 off coupon to use on trademark merchandise at the festival or a 10 percent discount on trademark merchandise to redeem on the recently launched From the Land of Kansas Marketplace.
The Kansas Department of Agriculture and From the Land of Kansas trademark program provide support and assistance to help make Kansas businesses more successful, grow rural communities, expand markets for Kansas agricultural products, and grow the agricultural workforce.
