Go Gonzo at the GonzoFest April 11

If you're a fan of Hunter S. Thompson, music, poetry, crafts or just getting a little weird, sometimes, you've got to go to GonzoFest Louisville. This annual event celebrates all things Hunter S. Thompson and the entire spirit of being Gonzo. In other words, it's time to let your hair down and embrace the slightly weirder side of Louisville.

Going Gonzo

It's the fifth year of GonzoFest, and this year is going to be the weirdest year yet. Two stages will feature live music from local Louisville acts. You can also hear poetry readings. And if you're a writer yourself, enter the literary contest.

 Maybe you like art instead. Browse the drawings for a Hunter S. Thompson statue, and see which you like best. Live art will also be on display, and many craft vendors will have booths set up if you want to do a little shopping. GonzoFest merchandize will also be available.

Take a wild picture of yourself in the Gonzo photo booth before you watch the Squallis Puppeteers perform. If you get hungry, no problem. The Monkey's Uncle Grill, featuring Lil Cheezers, will be providing eats for all.

GonzoFest is at Waterfront Park this year. Look for it at the Parkway Lawn at 2 pm. GonzoFest doesn't end until midnight, so you'll have plenty of time to get weird. Admission is $15.

By the Water

Louisville's waterfront is famous for being a beautiful community gathering spot. It draws people from all over Louisville who come to concerts and other events, like GonzoFest, but the people who live closest have the chance to enjoy the park most often.

Head along River Road and Waterfront Park place to find gorgeous waterfront living. This is where you'll find some of the city's most modern condos and picturesque homes. Head deeper into the city to find modern high-rise living, city dwelling at its finest.

Like history? Downtown Louisville is full of historic homes as well, remainders of the earlier days of the city when Louisville was still young. There's something for everyone in downtown Louisville, including weirdness!
