Saturday's event included poetry, spoken word, art and live music.

It brought in visitors from around the area.

 "We've never been here before, we heard about it 6 days before. I'm a big fan of Hunter Thompson Myself. So we all just decided we were gonna come down here. We're from Knoxville, TN. We just decided we were going to take a little trip today. And we've been enjoying it," said a group of attendees. 

This is the sixth year for GonzoFest Louisville.
