Welcome One and All
Jackson Storyfest - igniting imagination through the art of storytelling
It all started with a spark of an idea on a plane returning from the National Storytelling Festival in Jonesborough, Tennessee. Over twenty-five years later,over 150,000 children, youth, and adults, have shared in the unique experience of Jackson Storyfest.
Held the first weekend of May each year, Storytellers from all over the United States bring their special stories to Jackson, Michigan; where audiences of all ages share in the laughter, the tears, and the memories.
Join us April 30, May 1, 2, and 3, 2014 for Jackson Storyfest, celebrating over 25 Years of “Stories to Tickle, Tug and Touch You” – where national and local storytellers will delight children and adults.
The fun begins Wednesday with storytelling sessions for Jackson area pre-school children and continues on Thursday with a morning adult performance. On Friday, the flame of excitement will touch over 5,000 children who will be attending performances at sites throughout downtown Jackson. The streets will fill with children and their teachers who will enjoy 18 exceptional tellers. Our goal – to help children understand that we are all part of a larger community united through the love of stories!
The excitement continues on Friday evening, when a very special adult performance will be held. Saturday starts early with 2 information-packed workshops and ends with an afternoon performance for all ages.
We hope to see you April 30, May 1, 2, and 3, 2014 in downtown Jackson, Michigan ~where it promises to be a treasure to remember!
Proud to be a Spring 2012 National Storytelling Network (NSN) REGIONAL SPOTLIGHT EVENT
