Join Donald Davis, Carmen Deedy, Eth-Noh-Tec, Bill Harley, Pippa White, Antonio Sacre, Carol Birch, Daniel Morden, Tim Lowry, Shonaleigh, Jim May, and Kate Campbell and many more for an amazing weekend of stories, laughter, and music.

For 26 years, we have invited storytellers from around the nation and across the waters to join some of our homegrown talent and share stories under our own majestic Mount Timpanogos. Stories range from fairy tales and fables from various cultures to personal stories of growing up in the Appalachian Mountains. There are historical tellers, tall tale tellers, and youth tellers.

Between storytelling hours, younger ones love to watch the puppeteers while older festival goers enjoy making vases and cups with the potters. Everyone enjoys the food (provided by some of the Utah Valley’s finest food vendors) and the jugglers who entertain during lunch and dinner. You can also relax in the music tent and enjoy an incredible array of music. In fact, you could call us a music festival if it wasn’t for all the stories!

The Festival begins Thursday evening with Look Who’s Talking! It continues all day Friday, September 4 and Saturday, September 5 with evening shows both days as well. Come join us for an evening show or the whole weekend; either way we are sure you’ll be hooked!

  Storytelling for Grownups
State: New Jersey

Enjoy an evening of stories at the Open Life Stage at Rest Stop Rejuvenate in New Jersey's Morris County. Featured teller this evening will be Bernie Libster, who has told stories to Gilda's Club members and senior housing residents, at New York's Cornelia Street Café, the New Jersey Storytelling Festival, and many other venues. When he began volunteering at hospice four years ago, he discovered a unique opportunity to "give," and that included stories. Tonight you'll meet heart-stealing women lost in a silent world of their own; Dr. Mel, a Caribbean-born, Scottish-educated physician whose entire vocabulary, and love, consisted of one word: "Beethoven;" Angel Eyes, whose eyes spoke words her tongue no longer could; Dulcie, a Norwegian Forest Cat whose striking photos inspired Rose, utterly motionless and speechless, to move and talk, at least one word; Santiago, courageous and comical young stroke victim....and Bernie's fellow resident on Jupiter 6 billion years ago; and the teller's mother, whose dream of operatic stardom in America was shattered by the Depression--and her own personal depression.

The evening also includes a workshop, "Crafting a Family Story," during which attendees will learn how to turn a favorite family anecdote or memory into spoken word, and look at ethical questions about family stories. Workshop taught by the extraordinary Rivka Willick.

Donald Davis was born in a Southern Appalachian mountain world rich in stories, surrounded by a family of traditional storytellers who told him gentle fairy tales, simple and silly Jack tales, scary mountain lore, ancient Welsh and Scottish folktales, and most importantly, nourishing, true-to-life stories of his own neighbors and kin. Featured at festivals throughout the U.S. and world, Davis is also known as a prolific author, producer of books and CDs, and as a guest host for NPR’s Good Evening. Davis is a recipient of the NSN ORACLE Circle of Excellence and Lifetime Achievement awards. “I could have listened all morning to Donald Davis … his stories often left listeners limp with laughter at the same time they struggled with a lump in the throat.” – New York Times
