Annual Gala

2017GalaPoster-FinalTo buy tickets for this year’s annual gala, please visit! You can also buy tickets at the door.

Our annual MoSt Poetry Center Benefit provides our supporters with the chance to enjoy food, drinks, and music while mingling with poetry-minded friends.

Silent auction items, including art from local artists, original crafts from local artisans, and poetry book baskets, are unique each year and not to be missed!

All proceeds help support the creation, enjoyment, and dissemination of POETRY in the Stanislaus County region. Just this year, we have held our annual poetry festival in February, are working on establishing a chapbook series for local up-and-coming poets, and are partnering with the Carnegie Arts Center in Turlock to bring United States Poet Laureate Juan Felipe Herrera to the Carnegie for a reading and workshop.
