The Auburn Winter Storytelling Festival on January 27, 2018 is a free community event bringing together storytellers from all over the region. The all-day event is at General Gomez Art and Event Center, 808 Lincoln Way, Auburn, California.
A children’s hour with stories and music for families starts off the day at 10 am.
After a lunch break a free workshop taught by an experienced teller will share tips and techniques to improve or even just began your own storytelling journey.
Open Telling starts at 2:45. Rules are the story must be no more than five minutes, must be family friendly, and told with no notes or props. Sign-up forms are available at the welcome desk.
Who is the biggest liar in the neighborhood? The Liar’s Contest starts at 5 o’clock and gives tall tale tellers a chance to lay it on thick. Again, rules are a five-minute limit, family friendly and told with no notes or props. Tellers are asked to sign-up.No lawyers or politicians need apply.
At 6:30 pm six regional storytellers perform stories for a grown-up audience. Here is where you’ll hear about the lovely heifer taken to be serviced by a big ugly Brahma bull, or the holiday pie lost off the top of Dad’s car, or flapjacks that saved a family’s fortune in gold dust or…what will this year’s stories be?
This is the third Auburn Storytelling Festival presented by the Foothill Storytelling Guild, an eclectic group of foothill people interested in keeping the art of telling stories aloud alive. The entire day is FREE to the public. For more email@example.com
