“I felt that I breathed an atmosphere of sorrow.” — Edgar Allan Poe

Poe Festival Pre-Sales & Saturday ‘Visiter’ Awards Announcements

A WellSPRING at Poe

Wherever you are, Poe Nation, you too are more than likely experiencing some kind of maddening weather. Warmer temperatures in Baltimore = a rising pollen count + an uptick in visitors darkening Poe's chamber door at Amity Street. The season has officially begun!

Festival weekend dates have been announced and pre-sales for the International Edgar Allan Poe Festival & Awards are happening now thru June 30. We are also very pleased to announce our 2023 Saturday 'Visiter' Awards Guest of Honor, Rodney Barnes, and our distinguished panel of Judges from Poe Places and Maryland Arts organizations. In May, look for changing hours (now open Wednesdays in May.) If you plan to stop by, be sure to pick up NEW "Legend of the Poe Toaster" Mystery Mugs in the Poe House gift shop! Read this month's newsletter for all this and more details.

Yours in Poe,
Enrica Jang
Director, Poe Baltimore
