POETESS and Poe Fest International

Spring is the maddest season as it's the official beginning of planning for Poe Fest International: date has been set for the International Edgar Allan Poe Festival & Awards and "Death Weekend" is slated for October 8th & 9th, 2022. We begin to assemble our hale and light-hearted friends with the return of PAVERS FOR POE FEST Tour Ticket pre-sales! Poe Fest International is a FREE community festival, but additional tours and ticketed events abound. Support the Edgar Allan Poe House & Museum with an engraved paver in Poe Park, get first access to the official festival t-shirt and Bus Tours of Poe's Baltimore! As ever, proceeds benefit The Edgar Allan Poe House & Museum in Baltimore.

Check out the new addition to this year's festival poster as our program and festival events are inspired by the Virginia Poe Bicentennial, a most poetical year of events and exhibits to commemorate the 200th birthday of Edgar Allan Poe's wife and muse.

But why wait to commemorate? Join us this month, April 19 at 7PM, at Westminster Hall & Burying Ground for POETESS. The Virginia Poe Bicentennial Discussion Series welcomes female-identifying poets from Baltimore & Richmond for a special National Poetry Month reading of Poe works and original poetry, plus presentations from the Poe Studies Association and The Edgar Allan Poe Society of Baltimore.
Yours in Poe,
Enrica Jang
Director, Poe Baltimore
