The Prairie Fire Festival in Cottonwood Falls, Kansas is a six day event in tribute to the ranchers of the Flint Hills of Kansas who participate in the annual range management practice of burning the prairie. Activities include free seminars, demonstrations, art displays, quilt displays, and musical performances.
The biggest event of the 2014 Prairie Fire Festival week is the Friday evening K-177 BlueGrass Pickin' gathering. In 2008 more than 30 musicians participated in the blue grass jam session.
In 2014, the Festival will explore the Prairie history, nature and art. Jeff Davidson tells us about the physical history of the Flint Hills/TallGrass Prairie region of Kansas, and there willbe a week-long photography event throughout downtown Cottonwood Falls.
