Hot Springs has been hosting Wednesday Night Poetry every Wednesday evening since it began on February 1, 1989. It is thought to be the longest continuously-running poetry event in the country. The weekly event is held from 6:30 – 9 p.m. at Kollective Coffee+Tea at 110 Central Avenue in downtown Hot Springs. From mid-March 2020 to mid-June 2021, Wednesday Night Poetry was held virtually with poets from across the country and even internationally submitting video that can be found on the Wednesday Night Poetry Facebook page. As always, Wednesday Night Poetry is free and open to all ages.
