BLOOMSDAY BUFFALO CELEBRATES
THIS EVENT IS FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC
Buffalo, New York will join hundreds of cities around the world in the festivities surrounding Bloomsday, the international celebration of James Joyce’s literary masterpiece Ulysses, on Thursday, June 16, 2016. Everyone is invited to follow a day in the life of Leopold Bloom and his fellow Dubliners.
Fans of Ulysses from in and around the Buffalo-Niagara-Southern Ontario region will gather at the Andrews Theatre, 625 Main Street, in downtown Buffalo from 5:00pm to 9:00pm for the 18th annual celebration, a fun-filled evening of readings, performances, music, food and drink.
Bloomsday Buffalo and the Irish Classical Theatre Company are proud to bring this event to you as part of our community outreach. For the past 17 years it has remained free and open to the public. This event offers something for everyone. The festivities, including music, song and dance, will spill out onto Main Street as the readings, performances and music of the era continue inside the theatre.
Attendees will be guided merrily through the novel, Ulysses, and will include readings by Joyce fans from all walks of life.
