Capper Project

Kansas Cooperative Council, Kansas Fairgrounds Foundation, and the Kansas State Fair Partner in Creating the Capper Project

In the fall of 2021, the KCC embarked on a partnership journey to renovate the iconic House of Capper on the Kansas State Fairgrounds.  Dating back to 1913, this was the second oldest structure on the grounds.  The goal is to preserve the historical significance and architectural integrity of this cherished landmark while updating functionality for future generations of fairgoers. 

During this process, the new Capper Cooperative Park was established and is a significant addition to educate fairgoers on the cooperative business model for years to come.
