Visit Liberal

In the 1980’s, Liberal Kansas staked claim
as the official home of Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz  – and Governor John Carlin made it official! Now, you may visit Dorothy’s House and the Land of Oz here.

Liberal is also home to the Mid America Air Museum, the 5th largest aircraft museum in the United States. It is the home of the Baker Arts Center, that features local artist exhibits and traveling exhibits.

The city hosts the annual International Pancake Day Race*, the only event of its kind. This is celebrated in tandem, and in competition with the Olney Township in southeast England. In this traditional race, women hold a skillet with a pancake, in a 415-yard race.
Love local here! Find plenty of locally owned restaurants that provide local flavor.
Liberal is in the southwest corner of Kansas, above the Oklahoma panhandle.
