Timpanogos Storytelling Festival
The largest storytelling festival in the West – the Timpanogos Storytelling Festival – held every year in Orem, Utah at the close of August. Some of the nation’s best known storytellers unite with other tellers, both young and old, for two all-day celebrations of music, merriment, but mostly stories.
In addition to daytime performances held at Mt. Timpanogos Park in Provo Canyon on Friday and Saturday, there are typically public performances in the evenings, such as “Look Who’s Talking, “Bedtime Stories,” “My Favorite Stories” and “Laughin’ Night.” Before the main Festival begins, attendees may also attend storytelling workshops held on Thursday morning and afternoon at the Orem Public Library, given by four of the featured storytellers.
