Wonder City Wordfest
115 E Main St
Come to Wonder City Coffee in Locust Grove for a celebration of the written word in all its forms. From poetry to storytelling, dramatic readings and recipes, Wonder City Wordfest is sure to offer something for everyone to enjoy. The event will also mark the release of the Wonder City Coffee Cookbook, and will feature local author signings and book sales. Enjoy the downtown poetry parade, participate in all-day word art activities and see who takes home top honors in writing contests across a number of different genres at this can't-miss word nerd event in northeastern Oklahoma.
Those who love the sweeter side of writing won't want to miss the Pastry & Poetry Competition. Enjoy tasty treats from 10 pastry chefs who will be offering samples of their creations to the audience. The pastry judge will evaluate the pastries in a blind taste-test and choose a grand prize winner who will collect $200. The competition will also feature a poetry contest, wherein the writer crafts a three-line poem about the pastry of their choice for a shot at a Wonder City Coffee gift card. It's just one of the fun twists that make Wonder City Wordfest a literary event unlike any other.
