Event: Edmonton Storytelling Festival

Where: Multiple Venues, Old Strathcona, Edmonton
When: May 25 – 30, 2017

The annual Edmonton Storytelling Festival is a mix of school programs, storytelling workshops, daytime sets, a young tellers showcase, a Story Slam and a main stage performance or concert, all centered around stories and storytelling. Tellers from across Canada perform. As a guest of the festival you experience storytelling in its breadth and depth — its diversity of stories, venues, audiences and presentation styles. During the Story Slam, professional and burgeoning storytellers and writers performer 5 minute true(ish) stories with no notes. You, the audience, pick the winner. The Story and Song Concert is performed by a keynote teller who tells an epic tale in story and song. And the workshops for storytellers teach the craft and tricks of storytelling. The 2017 theme is “150 Golden Threads”.
