    Event is held at Lake Shawnee.

    The Topeka Blues Society (TBS) is proud to annually present the Spirit of Kansas Blues Festival, scheduled every 4th of July at Reynolds Lodge, Lake Shawnee, Topeka.   Music starts at noon, and continues until dark.  A spectacular nightworks show then lights up the sky, reflecting over the lake. Attendees may bring shade tents (there will be a designated area), coolers/food, blankets and chairs.  The Topeka Blues Society has added a food tent in the festival area.  All proceeds benefit the Topeka Blues Society and this festival. Please, for safety reasons, NO GRILLS are allowed in the festival area. This festival is not free to produce, but through community support and donations, the Topeka Blues Society is able to offer free admission to all attendees of the Blues Festival, thereby exposing the blues to a large audience on Independence Day.  A donation will allow us to continue to bring quality, nationally recognized Blues bands to this festival, inspire continued growth for the Spirit of Kansas celebration, and generate additional commerce for area businesses.  The festival has shown much growth, and it gets bigger and better each year.
