Symphony in the Flint Hills cancelled due to damage sustained in storms


On June 15, 2019 the Symphony in the Flint Hills Signature Event site sustained severe damage. Tents were destroyed and due to predictions of incoming severe weather tonight, the board has made the difficult decision to cancel the Signature Event tomorrow. Our mission is to heighten appreciation and knowledge of the tallgrass prairie – and it is also our duty to protect it. Unfortunately, we cannot safely host the event. We also don’t want to put any lives in danger due to the storms in the forecast.

The undaunting year-round work to plan, set-up and manage a site of this magnitude with 700 volunteers, our small staff team, site leaders, vendors and you — our audience and supporters — makes the necessity of cancelling the Signature Event truly heartbreaking.

Thank you for your support and understanding. While there are no refunds or exchanges for event tickets, Symphony In the Flint Hills appreciates your support of our mission.  Symphony In the Flint Hills would not exist without your support.
