“All that we see or seem is but a dream within a dream.” — Edgar Allan Poe

Poe Festival VIP Pre-Sales Have Opened!

The International Edgar Allan Poe Festival & Awards returns to Baltimore the weekend of October 4-6, 2024! We're celebrating a Diamond Anniversary: 75 years honoring Poe's legacy at the Edgar Allan Poe House & Museum in Baltimore.

Attendees will see the return of in-person stage and vendors at Poe House. Admission to festival grounds is FREE. Additional ticketed events will take place all weekend, proceeds to benefit The Edgar Allan Poe House & Museum in Baltimore. There are many ways to celebrate Poe during festival weekend! VIP Pre-sales are open NOW and close May 31!

Donate a PAVER FOR POE in the new walkway at "Poe Park", get first access to VIP Death Weekend Bus Tour tickets or Black Cat Ball tickets at the 2024 International Edgar Allan Poe Festival in October! Tour tickets usually sell out a month before the festival, and this is the only way to reserve this year's tickets before they go on sale to the general public in June.

PLUS, by donating a PAVER FOR POE by May 31, you will be able to see your paver in the new "Poe Park" walkway at the festival in October this year! Personalize a 4"x8" paver (includes 3 lines of text) or an 8" x 8" paver (6 lines of text) and then visit your very own piece of Poe's legacy at Poe Fest International in October.

The "Poe Park" walkway is not only a central feature of the festival grounds, but a permanent fixture and lasting tribute to Edgar Allan Poe's legacy in Baltimore. Visitors from around the world will see this beautiful gift just steps away from Poe's chamber door. Paver donations support operations and programming at The Edgar Allan Poe House & Museum in Baltimore.
