It’s been said Emporia lives bigger than its population. We certainly agree!
Emporia is home to an unusually high number of world-class events. From cultural celebrations and music festivals to gravel cycling and disc golf, Emporia has something happening at all times throughout the year.
We are the founding city of Veterans Day, home to William Allen White, and the National Teachers Hall of Fame.
Perfectly accessible along I-25, our community is close enough for a weekend getaway, yet far enough from the city lights to have a remote and relaxing experience.
Join us on a world culinary tour, visit a historical site, take in a special event, or launch out into the Flint Hills.
No matter the reason, we know you will enjoy your time in Emporia.
