About the Poetry719 Festival

We Do Stuff Festival 2022

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 11 events across 7 days in collaboration with Arts Month. Due to covid-19 we have transitioned some of our events online and some in person!
