Free Folger Fridays

Join us on select Friday evenings for free lectures and events at the Folger. Enjoy extended exhibition hours and a free pre-show talk before your theater performance. Folger Fridays are typically 45 minutes long and start at 6pm. Reservations are requested and a theater ticket is not required for entry. Folger Fridays cover a wide range of scholarly and popular topics providing insight into Folger productions, exhibitions, and more.

Select Fridays now feature experiential events you can add to your evening of theatre. Tickets to these events can be purchased online or by calling the Folger Box Office at 202.544.7077.
