Fort Scott's Good Ol' Days 2014 A Success!



Thank you to everyone who made it downtown to celebrate another Good Ol’ Days weekend! The 33rd annual festival was a success. The weather deterred a few vendors but it ended up being a beautiful weekend.

The All American Lumberjack Show began on Friday afternoon and continued all day on Saturday. The show was a hit! We hope you took the opportunity to get some tips and tricks from the lumberjacks!

We received rave reviews about another excellent Red Garter show. Ken Clary and his saloon gals and guys never disappoint. We appreciate all the hard work they put in to make it a great event every year!

The street dances had excellent entertainment both nights with David Oakleaf & The Open Road on Friday night and Ernest James Zydeco on Saturday night. David traveled straight from the Wildhorse Saloon in Nashville to put on a great show. There was even a little two-stepping taking place in the crowd! We were thrilled to have Ernest James Zydeco back again this year. They were unable to play last year because of rain and they brought some great Cajun music to Fort Scott!

We want to send out a big thank you to Holmtown Pub for hosting the Car/Motorcycle Show. The new location brought out a lot of great cars and motorcycles and we look forward to having the event there again next year.


If you were able to make it downtown this year, we would love to hear from you. If you would like to provide feedback on this year’s festival, click on the “2014 Evaluation” tab at the top of the page to fill out a survey.
