Events

The Emily Dickinson Museum offers a variety of events and public programs throughout the year. Some programs celebrate poetry—the Emily Dickinson Poetry Walk in May and the Poetry Marathon in September. Others, like the Nineteenth-Century Children’s Circus in July, bring the past into sharper focus. Still others, like our monthly Arts Night, celebrate the ways in which Dickinson's legacy inspires contemporary creativity.
