The Regional Poets invite you to celebrate the fascinating expressions of the Colorado seasons in poetry, song and storytelling. A short 30-minute open-microphone segment will begin each program, where readers from the public are invited to share a 2-minute poem or song. Please bring poems or songs related to each season’s theme. A 90-minute program will follow. These are free, community events, open to everyone, and appropriate for all ages.

A post-Labor Day celebration of all the ways we work. Work has so many meanings – it’s how we build our lives, spend our days, and fulfill our dreams. We will reflect on the shortening days, the autumnal equinox, and heading back to school.

It Might as Well Be Spring!
Sunday, March 17, 1 – 3 pm
We will enjoy the many facets of spring as we move into the season of growth, spring equinox, and lengthening light. The day will be inspired by a song of restlessness and yearning–“It Might as Well Be Spring”–from the musical State Fair.
