  • Places to Stay:

     Manhattan has plenty of hotels. Here's a few of them:
  • Super 8 Motel - 200 Tuttle Creek Blvd, (785) 537-8468
  • Fairly close to campus .
  • Holiday Inn - 1641 Anderson Avenue, (800) 465-4329
  • Very close to campus, nearest hotel to the Rec Center. Also very close to Manhattan's "night life," but more expensive.
  • Econo Lodge - 1501 Tuttle Creek Blvd, (785) 539-5391
  • Also close to campus and the Rec Center. Cheapest place to stay in Manhatan, but it's a bit old and the service isn't always great.

    Other Details:

    We'll have a raffle set up during the festival with spiffy juggling prizes given away after the Saturday night show. Everything about the festival is free, including the shows! We'll also have some kind of fast and free lunch for festival participants on Saturday.
