Events

The Emily Dickinson Museum offers a variety of events and public programs throughout the year. Some programs celebrate poetry—the Emily Dickinson Poetry Walk in May and the Poetry Marathon in September. Others, like the Nineteenth-Century Children’s Circus in July, bring the past into sharper focus.
