Planning for the 37th annual Good Ol' Days is now underway!

Meanwhile, the following is a recap of the 36th annual Good Ol’ Days festival, 2017:

June 1 was the Fort Scott Talent Extravaganza! Having watched contestants sing during Fort Scott Idol, we then enjoyed their many other talents. Fort Scott Talent Extravaganza is a mix of all kinds of talent from singing, to dancing, to playing instruments and much more!

Friday night was full of events. Vendors on North Main (between Wall Street and Skubitz) were open for business again this year, so there was great shopping available! The Tom Davis Dragoon Charge (previously the Dragoon Charge) took place on Friday night. Red Garter performed on Friday night and continued all day Saturday at the Liberty Theatre.

On Saturday, June 3, we were excited to partner with Adam LaRoche, Buck Commander and Duck Commander to bring you the BBCO Outdoor Expo. In addition to outdoor vendors, many events took place: a NWTF sanctioned turkey calling contest, a dunk tank where you shoot a blunt tip arrow at the target, and a casting contest. A full schedule of events made this year's festival memorable!

Evening entertainment featured The Crayons, a band from the KC area that plays 60’s and 70’s music. There were songs from The Byrds, Kinks, Rolling Stones, Searchers, Zombies, Monkees, Hollies, CCR, Badfinger, Beach Boys and much more! On Saturday night, Shotgun & Lace performed at Skubitz Plaza. S&L is a country/rock trio made up of siblings from Schell City, Missouri. Accompanying their signature harmony, and what undoubtedly sets them apart, is the sister’s twin fiddles. Both classically trained and equipped with years of experience, the girls bring a refreshing element to country music.

We thank you for joining us for a fun-filled weekend at the 2017 Good Ol’ Days. We look forward to seeing you again in 2018!
