Annual Events & News
The Moon Marble Company hosts the "Marble Crazy" event which is held annually on the first weekend of March. This is a glassworking artist show featuring 20 + artists from across the nation. All of the artists demonstrate their own marble making techniques over the course of two days, Friday and Saturday. In addition to handmade marble making demonstrations, we also have an engineer who demonstrates his marble machine, which he designed and built after studying a patent of the first invention of a marble machine by the MF Christensen Company. For up to date information about this event, visit www.marblecrazy.com.
The second annual event that the Moon Marble Company helps to plan and sponsor is the City of Bonner Springs, "Marble Day". This event is held the first Saturday of May as a way to celebrate Spring and our first opportunity to get outside and play after a long winter. The Moon Marble Company hosts an annual marble tournament during the event on a concrete regulation sized marble ring in Centennial Park. Also at the event is a Wacky Parade, Running of the Pinkys (thousands of pink rubbers balls are dropped and raced down Oak Street through a series of obstacles), Old Fashioned Fun & Games, and Performers. The Running of the Pinkys is a fundraising event which benefits local organizations in Bonner Springs. For up to date information about Marble Day, visit www.marbleday.com.
