Bay Area
Storytelling Festival
The Bay's annual celebration of the well-told story
MAY 19 - 20, 2012 
Craneway Pavilion, Richmond 


Know anyone who tells a good story? We do.
And we're putting them on the stage for a weekend of entertainment.

(see details below)


For more than 25 years, we've brought nationally celebrated performers to the Bay Area. These spoken word performers tell stories to capture the imagination, lead us through laughter and tears, and face-to-face with ourselves. In addition to storytelling concerts, the Festival features music from local performers, a program for kids, open mic sessions, and a Story Slam (impress the judges and you could take home a prize!). This year we are thrilled to be bringing the Festival at the Craneway Pavilion. Local schoolchildren are participating in our 15th storytelling study trip, with a student-only concert on Thursday, May 18.

Join us for a weekend of storytelling!
Tickets available online until May 5, and will also be
available at the door.
