The Ofi Press Events

Open Mic Poetry Night 2016 Dates

(Last updated 28th of January 2016)

Each month The Ofi Press and The American Legion host a little international get together of poets who read their poetry, work by their favourite authors or really whatever takes their fancy. We have songs, good banter and cheap foor and drink. What more could you ask for?

All open-mic events are held on the 3rd Wednesday of each month (unless otherwise stated) at this address starting at 7.30pm:

The American Legion, 25 Celaya, La Condesa, Mexico City.
