Florida Storytelling Festival


April 12 – 15, 2018

Florida Storytelling Festival is a premier storytelling event, known nationally for its unique combination of workshops, concerts, youthful voices and sense of community.  People come from across the state of Florida and beyond to explore and savor the art of storytelling.

The festival kicks-off with a special Thursday evening storytelling concert. Friday and Saturday offer opportunities to immerse yourself in workshops, storytelling concerts, story swaps, story slams and lots of informal gatherings.  The Youthful Voices and Family Fun Storytelling Tent will be open all day Saturday. Our wonderful Story Store will offer a multitude of storytelling resources.

Workshops are held in meeting rooms in Lakeside Inn and outdoor heated tents.

Tell & Talks: An informal opportunity to both listen to stories and visit with the storytellers. Bring your questions, respond to the stories and get to know the storytellers and their work, up close and personal. Each session will include a different featured storyteller.

Stage Concerts: These four concerts will include all of the featured storytellers.  The Thursday evening and Sunday morning concerts will include tellers from the guilds and groups throughout Florida.  The Friday evening concert will include the music of Belmont & Jones. The Saturday evening program includes the Youthful Voices Concert with three of the most awesome young storytellers you can imagine taking the stage.

Recording Service: StoryHub, Inc. will provide video recording services for storytellers that want a professional quality recording of their work. Pre-registration required at http://storyhub.tv/StoryFest2016Video
