Wichita is Kansas’s largest city, having a metro population of 647,919 people. The current median household income for Wichita is $61,131. Wichita is situated along the Arkansas River in south-central Kansas. It is a town with well-established cattle drives between Kansas and Texas since the mid-1800s. Cattle and aeronautics are big businesses in Kansas. Since the 1920s Wichita has drawn aeronautic engineers and aircraft businesses to the region to design, manufacture, and test their planes – making Wichita the “Air Capital of the World.” Because Wichita straddles the Arkansas River, there are multiple festivals and events happening at the river’s edge, including the Wichita Riverfest that takes place every year in early June, the springtime Black Arts Festival and the nationally popular Renaissance festival, RenFair – plus film and music festivals and other community events. The greater Wichita metro area is home and host to several large employers, including, Airbus, Beechcraft, Cessna, Spirit AeroSystems, Big Dog Motorcycles, Koch Industries, Dean & DeLuca, Champps, U.S. AgBank, Vickers Petroleum, Optima Bus Corp., Coleman, Integra Technologies, and many others!
