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.
