Milford Readers & Writers Festival

Property Details

The Milford Readers and Writers Festival was conceived in March 2016, in a discussion about the possibility of creating a literary festival in Milford. Less than six months later, with a group of intense volunteers and collaborators, the idea became reality and Milford stages its very first Readers and Writers Festival during the first weekend of October, with a star line-up of authors, poets, performers, chefs, gardeners, conservationists and more.

The Festival has hosted authors Gloria Steinem, MK Asante, and John Berendt as well as Humans Collective. Grey Towers National HistoricSite, The Hotel Fauchere, the Dimmick Inn, the Pike County Public Library, The Waterwheel Restaurant and Bar, and The Column Museum hosted the panels and special events.

Since that first year, we have brought such luminaries to our stage including Alan Alda, Lee Child, Anne Perry, Len & Heather Cariou, and more. Our goal remains to serve Milford by hosting this event every year in order to bring writers and readers together in an intimate setting.
