About the festival:

Poe Fest International is a free, two-day outdoor event featuring Poe-themed performances, art, vendors and food, celebrating Poe’s life, works and his influence in the arts.

The festival includes Poe-themed performances, vendors, booksellers and music, plus family-friendly activities, poetry and art.

October 2 & 3 is also “Death Weekend”, commemorating the 172nd anniversary of Edgar Allan Poe’s death in Baltimore.

The Poe in Film & Fashion Exhibit (NEW in 2021!)

Presented by Poe Baltimore, this exhibit explores the ways in which Edgar Allan Poe's life and works continue to inspire and shape popular culture. Learn of the mysterious circumstances of Poe's death in Baltimore in 1849 and how the very clothes in which he was found are a tantalizing clue to the mystery of his final days. Next, explore the living arts of fashion and costume in recent films that adapt Poe's life or works, and the myriad ways Poe is interpreted for modern audiences.

The exhibit includes costumes from the most recent original films and adaptations of Poe's works, including the Netflix series, Altered Carbon, and a special sneak peek at production and costume details from 3 Days Rising, a new movie adaptation of Poe's "Fall of the House of Usher," starring Peter Greene, Ice-T, Mickey Rourke and Frank Whaley. NOTE: Death and funeral imagery (including body in an open casket) may not be suitable for young children. Viewer discretion advised.
