Typewriter Festival

May 5 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm

typewriter in the garden

Explore the fascinating world of typewriters at our first-ever Typewriter Festival! Try your hand at using typewriters as you learn about the history of these antique machines. Request custom poems-on-demand and other quick works from live writers (for an additional fee). Browse a variety of typewriters for sale. Listen to artists as they recite original poems. Guests are encouraged to bring their own typewriters from home and find inspiration to write in the Gardens. Whether you’re a seasoned collector or a typewriter novice, there is something for everyone at this inaugural event, including beer and wine for sale.

Festival is free with Gardens’ admission or membership. NOTE: We will not be processing new memberships during the Typewriter Festival. This helps us expedite festival admissions in a timely manner. We appreciate your understanding.

***Parking is extremely limited due to our shared parking lot. We encourage guests to carpool, ride share, bike, or walk to this special event!***
