The annual West End Poetry Festival is Carrboro’s premier poetry event.

In 2015, the festival will be held on Friday, October 16, and Saturday, October 17. All events are free and open to the public, so mark your calendars and make plans to join us.

2015 marks the 10th anniversary of the founding of Carrboro’s poetry festival, and the festival will bring together poets of different styles, ages, races and ethnicities, and stages of development to explore the themes of celebration, milestones, and marking time.
