Bloomsday Festival 2020
Celebrate Leopold Bloom’s fictional journey through the streets of Dublin as imagined in James Joyce’s epic Ulysses. Lauded as the greatest novel of all time, Ulysses has been called everything from masterfully moving to hilariously obscene. The Rosenbach’s rollicking day-long reading of Ulysses will feature literati, artists, public figures, and familiar personalities along with musical performances that will bring the book to life.
Bloomsday is free and open to everyone. Joyce enthusiasts and novices alike can drop by any time during the day to listen to the reading, relax in our Bloomsday Beer Garden with local food trucks, and catch a glimpse of Joyce’s manuscript with free admission to The Rosenbach
For the Bloomsday Festival 2020, we’ve made the decision to hold our celebration on Saturday, June 13 to make the event accessible to all. Nothing is changing about the festival except for the date! Read more about the change on our blog.
