Prairiesta is a celebration of the history, heritage, and culture of Russell, Kansas. It has been held every ten years since 1941. The 2011 Prairiesta celebrated Russell County's 140th Anniversary and the 150th Anniversary of the State of Kansas. The high point of the week's events was the Prairiesta Parade, which began with a longhorn cattle drive down Main Street and continued with over 140 entries. 

The theme for the 2011 Prairiesta was Windmills To Wind Power.
