The 2022 Bloomsday Festival

Bloomsday returns to Delancey Place on Thursday, June 16

Every year, the world celebrates Bloomsday on June 16, the day that James Joyce’s epic Ulysses is set in 1904. After a two year hiatus, the annual Bloomsday festival returns to the street in 2022 – just in time for the centennial celebration! Ulysses was published 100 years ago on February 2, 1922. The Rosenbach’s Bloomsday Festival will be commemorated with a day-long public reading on Delancey Place featuring literati, artists, public figures, and familiar personalities along with musical performances that will bring the novel’s tavern songs and arias to life. More details to come!
