Glawackus Hunt

Wednesday, February 28, 2024 - 10:00am to Saturday, March 9, 2024 - 10:00pm

A neighborhood scavenger hunt! Can you find the glawackus in Glastonury?

Join River Bend’s inaugural Glawackus Hunt!

Did you know that Glastonbury has its very own cryptid, the glawackus? Back in 1939, the Hartford Courant reported that a hunting party near Glastonbury had failed to catch an unknown animal that “looked like a dog, yet resembled a cat somewhat.” Thus began the (short) era of Glawackus Hunts in Hartford Country.

River Bend Bookshop and Glastonbury Historical Society are bringing the glawackus hunt back as a fun (and easy) neighborhood scavenger hunt: February 28 - March 8. Pick up your “sighting log” at River Bend Bookshop, or any of our participating local businesses, and start your own glawacus hunt. (For anyone who played Where’s Waldo over the summer, this is just like that! We encourage adults and kiddos alike to play for this one!)

Join us for Glawackus Day on March 9 and turn in your sighting log for raffle tickets and enter to win gift certificates from Center Wine & Spirits, Giovanni’s Pizza, Liquid Nirvana, treats from Brown Butter Bakery, and more!
