Yes, we're going on even in the rain! Enjoy the programming within our walled, heated tent courtesy of Party Perfect!

This event will feature tours, live music, readings, book talks, theatrical performances, and more! We welcome local author and speaker Harry Kollatz, Jr. and Alex Zavistovich of the National Edgar Allan Poe Theatre as our emcees for the day.

Plan your day with the schedule below! The $10 admission allows you to come and go, and covers all of the experiences aside from the trolley tour, which is only $10 extra.

We are proud to partner with RVA On Wheels once again to provide trolley tours of Edgar Allan Poe's hometown.

The 2020 Birthday Bash is generously sponsored by Blue Ridge Event Production, Party Perfect, Linden Row Inn, Center of the Universe Brewing Company, Taziki's Mediterranean Cafe, Parterre Restaurant, Fatty Smokes: BBQ Joint, Total Wine & More, Root Stock Provisions, and Ironclad Coffee!

Parking: we have limited spaces in our parking lot, and the hourly street parking around the museum does not apply on weekends. After 3pm, additional event parking is available in the Virginia Holocaust Museum's parking lot, accessible from 21st Street and only 1.5 blocks from the Poe Museum.
