The Longfellow Summer Festival is a tradition nearly as old as the national historic site itself. Join us in celebrating our 50th anniversary in 2022! This annual festival brings music, poetry, and community to the East Lawn of the Longfellow House on Sunday afternoons through the summer. The 2022 Summer Festival will kick off on Sunday, June 5. All events are free and open to the public.
The series is co-sponsored by the Friends of Longfellow House-Washington's Headquarters, the New England Poetry Club, and Berklee College of Music.
