Flint Hills Shakespeare Festival

September 7, 2018 to September 9, 2018



The Flint Hills Shakespeare Festival is a St. Marys, community-based initiative focused on providing small-town, classical, outdoor theater and a village festival experience to local and regional patrons under the stars of northeast Kansas.

Each fall, local volunteers transform a wood on the edge of town, affectionately known as Sir William's Hollow, into a rustic outdoor Shakespearean amphitheater and family friendly village festival.

​The festival was established in 2010 and has continued to grow into a successful annual event with more than 50 food, game and artisan booths spread throughout the forest that features a full-length Shakespearean show nightly. Last year's show and village saw more than 6,000 local and regional patrons attend over two weekends.
