Dodge Poetry Festival - Sept. 28 - Oct. 1, 2006

The 2006 and 11th Biennial
is coming home to Waterloo Village, Stanhope, New Jersey.
September 28 – October 1, 2006

To mark its 20th year the Dodge Poetry Festival, the largest poetry event in North America, will return in 2006 to its birthplace ― beautiful Waterloo Village, a National Historic Site in Stanhope, New Jersey.

Nearly 20,000 people are expected to welcome the 11th biennial Dodge Poetry Festival back to Waterloo Village. The Festival will return to a completely new Concert Tent, more spacious satellite performance tents, and expanded free parking facilities in the restored 19th-century canal-lock and riverside village. Join more than 60 poets ― many of international stature including Pulitzer Prize winners and Poets Laureate. Dozens of accomplished musicians and storytellers will also contribute to four days of poetry and music beside the Musconetcong River and among the Village’s lawns, trees, and historic buildings.

Waterloo Village is located one mile from Exit 25 of I-80, easily reached from New York City and points east and Pennsylvania and points west. I-287, the Garden State Parkway, Pennsylvania Turnpike, New Jersey Turnpike, and other major highways connect with I-80, offering easy access from points north and south. Special round trip bus transportation from New York City will be available during the Festival.

Tickets will go on sale in April 2006. Special Dodge Poetry Festival rates are now available and may be reserved at several nearby lodging facilities.
