Beginning in 2009, the Shawnee Parks and Recreation Department has decided to eliminate the yearly arts/crafts festival and replace it with a car show.  Food vendors are still welcomed.  The arts/crafts festival was the largest fund raiser for the White Lakes Optimist Club of Topeka and normally generated funds to assist the youth of Topeka and Shawnee County.  Our club has voiced our disagreement with this decision on numerous occasions, but to no avail.  If you were, or would like to be, an arts/craft vendor for the Annual Spirit of Kansas Festival, please send your remarks to the director of The Shawnee Parks and Recreation Department at:
