What is Storytelling?

If this will be your first time attending a storytelling event, you may be curious of what exactly you should expect. Storytelling is seen in various forms throughout history. It holds its place as a special way of communicating in a way that tellers are able to paint visual images in the audience's imagination. A common objective of storytellers is to convey morals through their messages and provide their listeners with a little food for thought. 

Some of our special guests base their tales on fiction while others prefer to share true stories. Whether focusing on the humor of daily life or sharing historical accounts, the variety of our festival will be sure to satisfy guests of all ages. Among the different storytelling styles, one fact remains as a common denominator between them is that you can expect emotion evoking messages that will leave you in awe!
