Event Details

The Kansas Shrine Bowl game will feature the state's best graduated high school football players, and will also feature many of the top high school band members and cheerleaders from across Kansas. Many Shrine Bowl players have gone on to stellar college careers, and some have starred in the NFL, including Gary Spani, Mike Bell, Paul Coffman, Barry Sanders, and Terrance Newman.

The flagship of the Kansas Shrine Bowl since its inception is the East-West High School All-Star Football Game. Other events included, from time to time, are:

Parade- The Shrine Bowl Parade, started in 1974, is the largest annual Shrine parade in Kansas. It features 70 to 140 Shrine Units from all 5 Kansas Shrine Centers. The Parade is lead by the 200 piece Kansas Masonic All-State High School Marching Band. Other elements of the Parade are the All-Star Football Players, the All-Star Cheer Squad, and the All-Star Cross Country runners.

Hospital Screening Clinic- Children with a medical need, that is treaded at Shriners Hospitals for Children, are considered for admission and totally free treatment. The screening clinics are held to provide an opportunity for a child's parents to explore the possibilities; and the clinics provide an opportunity for the child to be examined by professional medical staff and help determine an admission recommendation.

2 Mile Charity Road Race- This race is open to all with 13 age categories in both genders. The race is run at the same time and on the same course with the Shrine Bowl All-Star Cross Country Teams. It finishes on the stadium track during the pre-game ceremonies of the Kansas Shrine Bowl All-Star Football Game.

Shrine Bowl Arts & Crafts Fair- This event is held one day only, the last Saturday in July, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Open entries accepted for $30 booth space fee.

Poker Run for Kids- For motorcycles, cars & trucks. Held 12 p.m. to 3 p.m. around the host city of the annual Kansas Shrine Bowl. Cash prizes and sponsor gifts.

The events are produced by the Kansas Shrine Bowl to bring attention to the state's fine young talent, and to benefit Shriners Hospitals for Children. Kansas children are treated free in Shriners Hospitals for Children regardless of the child's race, religion, nationality, creed, or relationship to a Shriner. Through 2005, over 2.25 million dollars have been raised by the Shrine Bowl for the care and treatment of Kansas kids.
