SoFried Louisville 2022
The Southern Fried Poetry Slam is the nation’s largest premier poetry slam tournament and it is in Louisville for the second time since 2017. 32 teams and 16 individuals (indies) will travel from all over the nation to battle it out across Main street for cash and prizes.
Although competitions are a major part of this four-day festival, poets will also be donating their time and energy to community service projects in the downtown area. In addition, there will be plenty of poetry side events including free workshops.
