HayFest is an annual festival held on the Historic Yates Center Town Square in Yates Center, Kansas. This annual Fall Festival was re-branded to HayFest in 2022 to pay homage to our long-standing title as "Prairie Hay Capital of the World" and honor the agricultural heritage of Kansas. The festival features hay bale art, food trucks, live music, kids' games, family-friendly activities, a haunted house, a beer garden, and more!
