Shakspeare's Birthday

George Edward Perine. Shakespeare with his family, at Stratford. Engraving, mid to late 19th century

In addition to materials for Teachers and Students, Folger Education engages the community with programs for everyone!


Shakespeare for Kids offers beginners' activities, while local family workshops introduce Shakespeare and the Folger to kids and parents together.


Shakespeare for Seniors believes that learning has no age limit, engaging senior citizens with Shakespearean activities and Elizabethan style.


On the Sunday closest to Shakespeare's Birthday, the whole Folger opens wide for visitors from all over who come to celebrate with us! Cake, Entertainment, Crafts, Tours and more are available to anyone who visits on that day.
