17th Annual Adaptive Sportsfest

  • Lake Gladewater 1602 Lakeshore Drive Gladewater, TX, 75647 United States (map)

Our premier event is held annually on the fourth Saturday of September at beautiful Lake Gladewater in Gladewater, Texas. Sponsors, vendors and participants come from as far away as the Houston and Dallas areas for a day filled with fun and laughter. We provide “burgers and dogs” for every attendee that day courtesy of some amazing “grill-masters” that volunteer their time and equipment each year!  Activities include an archery clinic, hand-cycling, pier fishing, air rifle clinic, waterskiing, tubing and a kayak clinic. This event alone draws nearly three-hundred people each year & has continually grown over the past fifteen years.
