About

The Longfellow Summer Arts Festival brings music, poetry, and community to the East Lawn of the Longfellow House on Sunday afternoons through the summer. All events are free and open to the public.

In the case of inclement weather, poetry readings will be moved indoors. Concerts will be canceled or rescheduled.

The series is made possible with support from the Friends of Longfellow House-Washington’s Headquarters, New England Poetry Club, and the Berklee College of Music.
