Wonder City Wordfest is an annual celebration of poetry and community that began in 2014 as the Rural Oklahoma Museum of Poetry’s ROMPfest. From 2017-2019, the festival was held at Wonder City Coffee in downtown Locust Grove and was renamed Wonder City Wordfest. The day includes a variety of ways for people of all ages to stretch their creativity and be inspired by the beauty, joy and value of words, poetry, and community.
The 2020 WCW was cancelled due to the pandemic, and in 2021, we are not having a traditional festival; however, we are going to have some poetic fun for you for National Poetry Month: A Poetry Treasure Hunt in Locust Grove. Anyone anywhere is encouraged to come to town to join in the fun.
