The Cape Cod Bloomsday Group will NOT  be hosting an event on Bloomsday 2016.

We hope to be back next year.


Bloomsday is a commemoration and celebration of the life of Irish writer James Joyce during which the events of his novel Ulysses (which is set on 16 June 1904) are relived. It is observed annually on 16 June in Dublin and elsewhere.

Joyce chose the date as it was the date of his first outing with his wife-to-be, Nora Barnacle; they walked to the Dublin suburb of Ringsend. The name Bloomsday is derived from the main character in the book, Leopold Bloom, the Ulyssean protagonist.

Each year on Bloomsday, a group of volunteers meet up on Cape Cod and read selected works from Joyce. We hope you can join us for this cultural celebration.
