Thank you to all of our donors! The Emporia Community Foundation Match Day was a huge success thanks to all the wonderful people who support the greater Emporia Area and the Flint Hills. Your generosity allows us to continue promoting, and educating people, about the Flint Hills of Kansas.

Emporia Granada Theatre added 2 new photos.

Our Highway 99 Roots Fest is this Saturday starting at 4pm RAIN OR SHINE!! If it does rain (which it won't), we will move the acts indoors and admission is stil...l free with GA Seating & Standing.

We now have our super soft Highway 99 Ring Spun Cotton T-shirts (s-xl) for $18 & our Burlap Koozies for $4 available at the Theatre M-F 10-5. The way we pay for the artists, advertising, and tech for this event is by selling beer, soda, food & MERCHANDISE!!

To "incentivize" your koozie or t-shirt purchase we are also giving out raffle tickets (1 with each koozie purchase & 3 with each t-shirt purchase). We will be raffling off autographed guitars & other items (yes there will be Trace Adkins stuff), posters, beer schwag, even tickets to concerts that haven't even gone on sale yet (Joe Nichols & Reckless Kelly). We only have about 90 t-shirts so stop by the theatre this week, because we've got a feeling they will go fast on Saturday!
