About the Poetry719 Festival

Cyber Festival 2020


The Poetry719 Festival was started in 2018 as a way to recognize poetry and artists in the community. It is a multi-day event across Colorado Springs that showcases the amazing talent this city has to offer. It is a jam-packed week of various poetry-related events. 


This year we will be holding 17 events across 5 days in collaboration with Arts Month. Due to covid-19 we have transitioned our events online and offering everything free of charge to the community!
