2021 Sunken Garden Poetry Festival

September 10, 2021 - September 12, 2021


Now entering its 29th year, the Hill-Stead Museum’s Sunken Garden Poetry Festival continues to celebrate poets laureate, Pulitzer Prize winners, and prestigious award recipients.

The community cherishes this annual series of readings and music performances on the grounds of this National Historic Landmark in the heart of Farmington, CT.

The 2021 Festival will take place on the West Lawn where attendees will be properly socially distanced. Bring a blanket, chairs, and a picnic. Inspired by the surroundings, many attendees take the opportunity to write their own poetry and prose, lingering after dusk to finish their poems and conversations.

Seating is limited and advance purchase of admission is strongly encouraged. Don’t fret if you cannot be there in person. You can tune in from the comfort of your home with a Livestream presentation as it happens.
