The Mad Poets Festival features five hours of short, 5-minute readings by more than 40 locally and nationally known poets, followed by a reception. Since 1987, we have proudly hosted this Festival on the first Sunday in October, in conjunction with the Media Food & Arts Festival, which packs State St. in downtown Media with a wide variety arts, crafts, live music, and fresh food. Thousands turn out each year to savor the outstanding flavors of Media and regional restaurants. Get a jump on your holiday shopping at Media’s retail boutiques and browse hand-made crafts.
