The Galesburg community has joined together since 1996, for a celebration of the life and legacy of Galesburg native, three-time Pulitzer Prize-winning poet and Lincoln biographer--Carl Sandburg.

The 25th Carl Sandburg Festival will take place April 23-26 to honor the life and legacy of the Galesburg-born, two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning poet and Abraham Lincoln biographer through educational and recreational activities in and around Galesburg.

Featured events for this year's festival include a discussion by visiting author Claire Hartfield, the awards ceremony for the 30th annual Carl Sandburg College Poetry Competition and the 13th Rootabaga Poetry Slam, a yearly favorite at the festival that once again will include cash prizes for the winners.
