Nevada County Arts Council will present its 4th Annual Sierra Poetry Festival on Saturday, April 18 at the Miners Foundry, Nevada City, CA, attended by some of our most exciting local, national and international poets and performers.

In addition to its mainstage event, Sierra Poetry Festival marks National Poetry Month from the rolling foothills of California’s Gold Country to the rugged High Sierra, bringing our rich literary community together to celebrate the spoken word and reach out to brand new audiences in fresh ways. Readings, workshops, music, an activity fair for all ages and youth performances will be preceded by a month of pre-festival pop-up poetry events. Come join us!
