Welcome Storytellers and Story Listeners!
Everyone loves a good story and The St. John’s Storytelling Festival is making sure that there’s always someone ready to tell one. We host a monthly storytelling circle, a yearly festival, plus workshops to keep local tellers in top form, and give local listeners lots of chances to hear great tales.
Join us Tuesday, May 8th at 7:30 pm for our monthly Story Circle!
Hosted by Dale Jarvis at the Crow’s Nest Officer’s Club
