KansasFest is held at
1100 Rockhurst Rd Kansas City, MO 64110-2508 N 39° 01.95 W 094° 34.17
Rockhurst is reached by flying to
Kansas City International Airport, from which you may use KansasFest’s Peikop Endropov volunteer shuttle service. Driving directions from the airport and other origins are also available, and the Rockhurst Web site offers several campus maps to help orient you.
If your travels require you to stay near the airport before or after KansasFest, we recommend the
Sleep Inn Airport. If you choose not to stay at Rockhurst University during KansasFest and wish to stay somewhere near campus, we suggest the Hampton Inn & Suites.
