The Kansas Sports, Boat and Travel show will be the last event to take place at the Kansas Coliseum’s Britt Brown Arena, Feb. 18 – 21.
After Feb. 21, Sedgwick County will preserve the building in its current state and maintain it to an extent that limits further deterioration. The Pavilions at the Kansas Coliseum will continue to host a variety of events.
For many years, Britt Brown served as the “Showplace of Kansas,” but time and changing needs told local leaders and residents a new facility would better serve the area. The INTRUST Bank Arena in downtown Wichita was the result of those changing needs, which now hosts the area’s premier sports and entertainment shows.
