Tucson Poetry Festival is an annual celebration of poetry. Every spring, the festival brings regional and national Poets to the Old Pueblo for a weekend of verse, discussion, and creativity. The Festival includes readings and workshops led by esteemed poets from all over the country and closes with an open mic event. TPF also sponsors readings and other poetry-centered events throughout the year as well. 

Our Mission

The Tucson Poetry Festival seeks to provide an accessible and diverse celebration of poetry. All festival events are free and open to all members of our community. We collaborate with local businesses and organizations, along with venues that are accessible to all.
