West End Poetry Festival

The West End Poetry Festival is Carrboro’s premier poetry event. One weekend every October the festival brings together poets of different styles, races and ethnicities, and stages of development to share poems and their love of poetry. Sponsored by the Town of Carrboro, the festival is free and open to all. Please join us.
