Carrboro’s Premier Poetry Event

The 2016 festival is past, but mark your calendar now for the 2017 West End Poetry Festival, which will take place Friday and Saturday, October 20 and 21. As more information about the next festival becomes available, it will be posted here. So check back here later. Or, better, yet, sign up for our infrequent mailing list to be notified when details are ready.


The 2016 West End Poetry Festival will be held on Friday, October 14, and Saturday, October 15. All events are free and open to the public, so make plans to join us.

The festival will bring together poets of different styles, ages, races and ethnicities, and stages of development to share poems and their love of poetry.
