The Belfast Poetry Festival, one of the few community-based, non-academic poetry festivals in the United States, is possible thanks to support from The Maine Review, the City of Belfast, the Belfast Free Library, and the office of the Belfast Poet Laureate. For more information on the event, the Maine Postmark Poetry Contest, or other programming produced by the Belfast Poetry Festival, contact Jacob Fricke or see our facebook page.
The Belfast Poetry Festival marked its fifteenth year with a full plate of poetry, community, and artistic possibility on Friday and Saturday, October 18th-19th, 2019. An all-arts festival with poetry as the driving force, the 2019 event combined variety show, art exhibit, and literary showcase.
