At Gladfest we bring together the most exciting contemporary writing from all over the country, and this year is no exception with history, poetry, art, memoir, nature writing, spirituality and fiction of all kinds.
The time has flown by, but the fun is still going strong. Axe throwing, a mobile scavenger hunt, cash prizes for parade entries and a revamped Kids Corner await alongside carnival rides, vendor booths of all kinds, a train show, concerts and other live entertainment on the Linden Square stage, sweet and savory treats, and more! The organization co-hosts the festival with the city of Gladstone. Those willing to try their hand at the target throwing will be able to choose from implements including stars and hatchets. Festivalgoers with a keen eye and a mobile device are encouraged to explore the festival grounds looking for code words as part of a scavenger hunt for a chance to win gift. Gladfest is evolving with downtown, and Harlin said that includes finding ways to engage with the people who live and work there. A new approach to branding the festival and keeping it top of mind for residents and visitors is also underway.
