The 2021 Bloomsday Festival

Throughout the month of June 2021 we’ll be celebrating James Joyce’s epic Ulysses with a series of digital and in–person programming leading up to a virtual Bloomsday celebration on June 16.

Bloomsday 2021 is made possible through a generous grant from The Consulate General of Ireland’s Emigrant Support Programme. Special thanks to Lenore H. Steiner and Perry A. Lerner.


The Bloomsday Artwork Contest

Calling all emerging Joyceans! As part of our 2021 celebrations, we’re pleased to open the Bloomsday artwork contest for works inspired by James Joyce’s Ulysses. Winners will receive a cash prize and their artwork will be featured as part of this year’s festivities. Learn more.

The 2020 Bloomsday Festival was celebrated virtually last year due to ongoing health and safety precautions in place of our annual festival on Delancey Place. You can watch the entire virtual festival here.
