“The course of true love never did run smooth.”

From Shakespeare, Lord Byron, Pablo Neruda, Langston Hughes, and more, we’re celebrating the greatest love poets from around the world on the most romantic day of the year!

All are welcome during this Open Mic Night highlighting the greatest love poets of our time.

Admission to this event is free, but advance registration is required. Open Mic performances may not exceed 3 minutes; content must be by a known author and related to the topic of love.
