Welcome to TELLABRATION!™, a night of storytelling celebrated world-wide on or about the third Saturday in November.

Guilds and storytelling enthusiasts all around the globe will share their storytelling talents in concerts held in cities and towns to celebrate the art of storytelling. Locally, TELLABRATION!™ brings together each area’s most celebrated storytellers, to delight, captivate, and mesmerize audiences with their stories. It creates a network of storytelling enthusiasts bonded together in spirit at the same time and on the same weekend.

Anyone can independently produce a TELLABRATION!™, a National Storytelling Network trademarked event: storytelling organizations and centers, schools, libraries, colleges, museums, performing-arts centers, story-swap groups, story enthusiasts, and others. Originally envisioned as an evening of storytelling for adults, our members have expanded the scope of the celebration over the years and across the world.

It’s not only a great way to celebrate storytelling, but an important opportunity to reach out to all those story enthusiasts who are not yet NSN members.

Please see the TELLABRATION!™ Producer Information link for a few simple things that NSN requires when you celebrate this wonderful, world-wide storytelling gathering with us.

Use the links at the right to learn more about producing your own TELLABRATION!™ event!
