Back to Broadway Celebration


Experience downtown Pittsburg in a whole new way at the 2018 Back to Broadway Celebration!

The Colonial Fox Theatre Foundation and Westar Energy, in collaboration with the City of Pittsburg, Craw-Kan Telephone, MPIX, Jake's Fireworks and PSU, are very excited to present the Back to Broadway Celebration on August 18, 2018 from 3:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. We are celebrating the return of the PSU student and, in particular, the new Block22 residetns who are soon to become our new neighbors in the Downtown District.

This celebration involves the entire community of Pittsburg in welcoming new and returning PSU students and the Block22 student residents to Downtown Pittsburg by introducing them to the entertainment, shopping, restaurant and service options that their neighborhood and the city has to offer.

At the same time, this enables the Pittsburg to display the Colonial Fox Theatre and surrounding block as they were intended in the past and for the future – for enjoying live music, having great evenings with friends, and gathering as a city to celebrate the incredible revitalization of our downtown hub. 

Where will we be celebrating?

  • In the Theatre – LIVE MUSIC starting at 6:30 featuring two regional favorites – Diana Louise and Jacob Tovar & the Saddle Tramps.  Tickets are only $5 for Block22 residents, their guests and other PSU students with a valid Student ID; $15 for everyone else. Because seating is limited, students may purchase their tickets now through July 31.  Tickets will be sold to the general public for $15 starting August 1 at colonialfox.org or by calling 620-235-0622.
  • On the Street – STREET FAIR from 3:00-5:30 for local businesses, restaurants, churches and food trucks. Introduce yourselves and your product to the students, their families, and the community. Booth spaces are $50 for businesses and restaurants, $75 for food trucks. No charge for churches.  Register for booth space at www.colonialfox.org/backtobroadway
  • In the Lot – BEER GARDEN - a shady tented spot next to the Colonial Fox from 3:00-9:30 for enjoying a drink before the shows or just day-drinking in the shade. A few good beers, wines, and a special cocktail will be available for purchase.            

We sincerely hope you will join us to celebrate this milestone for Downtown Pittsburg.
