Twainfest is a FREE celebration of Mark Twain and other writers of the 19th century. Great fun for all ages.

Hear works by Walt Whitman, Emily Dickinson, Harriet Beecher Stowe, Paul Laurence Dunbar, Edgar Allan Poe and others, read aloud by San Diego actors.

Prof. Pudd’nhead & Co. will delight the little ones with ‘Punch and Judy’ and other puppets.

Play literary games designed for kids including Fish for Words, Chortle This, and Telegraph Crunch.

Be sure to vote in the Election of 1872, but not until you’ve passed the Literacy Test. Spin our Wheel of Fiction or participate in a Treasure Hunt. Or prove how good a liar you are by competing in our Liar’s Contest.

Don’t miss the sack races, ring toss, marbles and other games of the period that will be played on the green.

Or come and participate in the 19th century Community Spelling Bee or make a contribution to the Never Ending Story, to which anyone who wishes may contribute.

TwainFest is produced by Write Out Loud, Fiesta De Reyes and Old Town San Diego State Historic Park with additional partners: Cygnet Theatre, Lamb’s Players Theatre, Old Town Gift Company, Playwrights Project, The Heller Foundation at Union Bank, The Samuel I. & John Henry Fox Foundation and The Arthur & Jeanette Pratt Memorial Fund and the City of San Diego Commission for Arts and Culture.
