Topeka has a long and rich history - with many stories as yet untold. No matter what you're looking for - locations for filming, new story ideas, itineraries for press trips, great photos or interviews - Visit Topeka is here to help.

Story Ideas

Looking for an inspiring angle for your news story? Topeka has plenty! There's always a fun event or newsworthy story in Topeka and we're here to help you get everything you need to make your story special - and still make deadline!

Captivate your audience with a feature on the up-and-coming Midwest artists experimenting with metal, paint, found objects and agricultural implements in the North Topeka Arts District. Give your story a rich, historical context by connecting it to Topeka's role in the Civil War, the fight to end slavery, and the Civil Rights Movement. Celebrate LGBTQ+ Pride at the Equality House in central Topeka or in NOTO at the rainbow walk. 

Engage your followers with a review of the entertainment and restaurants that infuse Topeka with a passion for culture and flavor, (a Topeka Sweet Treats tour, anyone?) Discover how Topeka is preserving history - not only the history of the city, but also the state of Kansas - through the astounding renovation of the Statehouse and is brought to life in Kansas Museum of History exhibits. No matter your target audience or area of interests, you'll find the perfect story idea to excite and inspire your readers.

We know working on deadline can be stressful. Contact us and we'll make sure you get what you need to make your story outstanding.
