The NOTO Arts and Entertainment District and Envista Credit Union once again are bringing NOTO LIVE to North Topeka. It is a celebration packed full of performance art, live music, busking, and talent of all kinds.
This family-friendly event is Saturday, September 11, from 11:30am to 8:00pm, and will feature performers sprinkled throughout the arts district, with special acts at Redbud Park and Compass Point, and a grand finale by Last Carnival Act to end the evening.
The new Otto’s Adventure Area will provide special interactive art stations and opportunities for the little ones to try a little busking of their own.
