Admission

The Festival Button: Admission to all festival events require a festival button. The prices this year are as follows:

  • General Admission - $15
  • Seniors and students - $7
  • Workshop fee - $5

That $5 allows you to sign up for as many workshops as you want to take. Preregistration allows us to keep the workshops small and allows for the best possible experience. We are attempting to move the festival towards self-sufficiency.

However, even with the modest increase in button prices, we will still only generate revenue to cover half of the festival costs, which is why we urge you to make a larger donation if you can afford it. Help us continue to offer the festival experience at a low price so that everyone can attend. We encourage those who can to make a larger donation to help support poetry in Massachusetts and meet the costs of the festival.

Beat the rush! You can get first in line for an official Festival Button by making a donation online now. All who donate online will be placed on a list and will be handed a button upon checking in at the festival.

Coming soon on our Admissions page, we’ll list the shops, restaurants, and books stores, in Salem and elsewhere, where you can donate and receive your Festival Button.
