SoCe | SO-SEE |
proper noun, derivative of South Central

  1. Neighborhood in South Central Wichita, KS with boundaries from the river to Washington St. and Kellogg to Harry St.

  2. A quirky place to live with talented resilient neighbors who care about each other.



The SoCe Neighborhood Showcase is a neighborhood party stretching from St. Francis to the River along Gilbert St. We hope this party helps form a common identity for the neighborhood and encourages residents to share their voice to determine the neighborhood’s future.

You can start your tour at any location and will be given a “passport” to guide you through the stops. If you visit at least four stops, you will be entered to win one of several prizes.

Let us know you are coming on the Facebook Event: https://www.facebook.com/events/2142801995773183/
