Due to inclement weather, the Bloomsday Festival has been moved to the rain location at Trinity Memorial Church at 2212 Spruce Street.
The Science History Institute joins the Rosenbach for its annual Bloomsday celebration of James Joyce’s Ulysses.
Every year, the world celebrates Bloomsday on June 16, the day that Ulysses is set in 1904. Nowhere celebrates quite like the Rosenbach, home of Joyce’s manuscript. Bloomsday is a day-long public reading held on Delancey Place with musical performances that bring the epic novel to life.
Joyce enthusiasts and novices alike can drop by any time to listen to the reading, enjoy free admission to the Rosenbach to view portions of the Ulysses manuscript, and relax in the beer garden with a special Bloomsday brew from Attic Brewing Company.
This event is free and open to the public.
Join us in celebrating the opening of our newest exhibition, BOLD: Color from Test Tube to Textile.
