Hill-Stead Museum’s renowned Sunken Garden Poetry Festival is a unique outdoor arts event which takes place on the grounds of this National Historic Landmark in the heart of Farmington, CT.

The community cherishes this five-event series of readings and music performances in the tranquil and historic Sunken Garden. Visitors can arrive early to tour the museum’s world-class Impressionist art collection, walk the trails or attend the prelude conversations with headlining poets.

Inspired by the surroundings, many attendees take the opportunity to write their own poetry and prose, lingering after dusk to finish their poems and conversations.

Hill-Stead is proud to make the Sunken Garden Poetry Festival accessible to all.
