Fort Scott's Good Ol' Days 2015 A Huge Success!


Conway Jackson

Thank you to everyone who made it downtown to celebrate another Good Ol’ Days weekend! The 34th annual festival was a success. Sunny skies and no rain was a great addition to the weekend.

Saturday, at the Plaza Stage, Spike Blake and Half of Dueling Pianos put on two great shows in the morning. There was a lot of singing along from the crowd which always makes for great entertainment. Tom Thompson, comedian hypnotist, performed two shows in the afternoon and had great audience participation! Thank you to the volunteers who were willing to be hypnotized. You all provided lots of laughs.


Big Time
Grain Company

We want to send out a BIG thank you to Angie Kemmerer and everyone that made the FREE Children’s Fair a huge success. Kids were lined up all day on Saturday to have their faces painted and take part in all the activities. We hope to see this wonderful event again next year.

The street dances had excellent entertainment both nights with Conway Jackson on Friday night and Big Time Grain Co. on Saturday night. Conway Jackson headed north from Pittsburg, KS, to entertain the crowd with some Red Dirt Country Rock music. Then, Big Time Grain Co. wowed everyone with a great line-up of Country songs. There was even a little two-stepping taking place in the crowd!

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!

If you were able to make it downtown to the 2015 event, we would love to hear from you. If you would like to provide feedback on this year’s festival, click on the “2015 Evaluation” tab at the top of the page to fill out a survey.
