Olathe has many comfortable and relaxing hotels to choose from.

OLATHE—FEELS LIKE HOME.

We run together. We play together. We dream together. Our people create experiences that build friendships and community.

And we welcome you to become a part of us—whether it’s just for a morning marathon, an evening of imagination, or a weekend of celebrations.

Join us for blue skies, autumn leaves, and a weekend of art during the Hidden Glen Arts Festival at Cedar Creek. Held on the third weekend in September, the festival brings together nearly 100 local, national, and international artists. Celebrate their craft and the spirit of creativity with live entertainment and activities.

Or maybe you long for a weekend of traditional celebration--carnivals, parades, live music, car shows, horseshoe pitching contests, and ice cream socials. Since 1898, Old Settlers Days has welcomed neighbors and new friends into the heart of downtown Olathe for family friendly fun. This annual homecoming is held on the first Thursday through Saturday after Labor Day.

You could also stop by and join us for a night of theatrical magic from the Olathe Community Theatre Association, housed in the historic Covenant Church. Local directors and renowned playwrights recreate life’s drama on the stage, which has grown into one of the most successful and progressive community theatres in the Kansas City metropolitan area. Also, don’t miss the Chestnut Fine Arts Theater located in a renovated home in Downtown Olathe.

If working up a sweat is your idea of a weekend retreat, run with us in the Olathe Marathon, presented by Garmin International. Now in its ninth year, the marathon attracts upwards of 2,000 runners on the last Saturday of March. Run the full marathon, half marathon, or the 5K. And the kids can also reap the sweaty rewards of a good run in the Kids’ Marathon.

Come play for a day or a weekend. We may not let you win every art competition, horseshoe contest, or race, but we play nice—and we look forward to meeting you.
