Bay Area Storytelling Festival

May 10th, 2009 · No Comments

The 24th Bay Area Storytelling Festival takes place on May 16 and 17, 2009 at the Kennedy Grove Regional Recreation Area, El Sobrante.

Outstanding storytellers from around the world visit the Bay Area each Spring to bring to life tales old and new: folk tales, family stories, fables, recollections, ghost stories, tall tales, fairy tales, and classic stories from many many cultures. Join us for a weekend of outdoor concerts of oral storytelling, and treat your imagination to the power and elegance of the well-told story.

Featured tellers for 2009: Judith Black, Doug Elliott, Jay O’Callahan, Antonio Rocha, and Gayle Ross.

The Festival is a project of the Storytelling Association of Alta California, a not-for-profit membership organization dedicated to promoting storytelling as a living art form. The SAAC is a regional voice for story listeners and storytellers in California, reminding the local and national community of the power and the joy of storytelling.
