What this is all about is fun. Not just the kind you can take home to your family, but the kind you can bring your family out to. For a day and a half, you’ll find the kind of entertainment that kept everything lively until they introduced the ear-leashes that attach to everyone’s ‘I’ Pods, Pads, and Smart Phones. The kind of entertainment that brings everyone together, people of all ages, all colors, and all belief-systems.  It’s a full day-and-a-half, so you’ll find nourishment right on the premises (in addition to the many fine restaurants within easy driving distance). You’ll even have the opportunity to take to the stage yourself, if you have your own compelling tale to tale.

 Other fun festival fare includes:

During major breaks in the storytelling action, enjoy musical talent to rival the talent of the ‘Tellers. Some of these musicians have grown up performing in the Festival, and all truly represent some the finest young musical talent in the local northern Delaware, southeastern Pennsylvania region. We encourage you to give them a listen as you gather to await the storytelling performances. For more information, click here.

Open Microphone
This annual affair may be one of our most popular functions. You just never know what to expect...or who is going to show up, (right Olivia!). ‘Amateur’ storytellers pop right up out of the audience and tell some of the most engaging tales you’ll ever hear! They could be in grade school or old school, but they typically provide grade ‘A’ material. Get on the list early though, because time is tight. For more information, click here.

Children’s Storytelling Performances
When most people hear that we’re holding a ‘Storytelling Festival,’ they think ‘kids.’ And almost all of our storytellers can engage audiences of any age. Adults will certainly appreciate every Teller we bring in. But we want to be sure there’s something available even for the very young. So we’re providing four storytelling performances specifically for children ages 6-12. And really, how often do you get to take your youngsters to see a two-time Grammy winner?
