Midfest: music. art. culture.

As a community-based festival, we celebrate the talent and hard work of musicians, artists, dancers, comedians, and entrepreneurs in our region. We invite you to join us as an active participant in this movement celebrating the creative spirit of humanity.

MidFest was started by a group of friends in the summer of 2016 to provide a platform for the local music scene in Manhattan, KS. The festival was held in a backyard, the equipment was donated, and the bands played for the love of music. 300 people came out to show their support. Now in the 4th year of existence, MidFest continues to provide a platform for local talent by offering bands and entertainers from all over, an opportunity to share their talents with a supportive and engaged crowd in beautiful, Manhattan, Kansas.
