Join us on Friday, October 27th, 2017 at 7th and Spring Garden Sts. for the second annual Poe Arts Festival. This event is a ghoulishly macabre celebration of the life and work of Edgar Allan Poe, literary genius and master of mystery, as well as of the lasting inspiration he has provided for generations of artists from Philadelphia and beyond. The event will make use of the German Society's historic building to showcase Poe’s poetic legacy and imaginative flair in a variety of forms, including performances, installations, music, talks, tours and other activities. In conjunction with the German Society's Poe Arts Festival, the Edgar Allan Poe National Historic Site will be providing free, first come, first served "haunting" literary tours of the home from 6:30-9:00 p.m.
Guests are encouraged to come in Poe-inspired costumes and prizes will be awarded for the most creative! For further information visit: www.PoeArtsFestival.com
We welcome members and non-members alike.
