Day of the Poets Poetry Festival


Celebrate poetry at Day of the Poets.  Orangeville’s first poetry festival will take place on Saturday, May 5 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.  Coinciding with the first outdoor Farmers’ Market of the year, the inaugural event will feature more than twenty local and regional poets.  Poetry readings will take place at four different venues in the downtown area including Town Hall, the Mill Street Library, Maggiolly Art Supplies, and Dragonfly Arts on Broadway. Poets will also engage in 'random acts of poetry' along Broadway and written poetry will be displayed in the windows of downtown businesses. This legacy project was created by Dufferin County Poet Laureate Harry Posner.  For more information, email
