Timpanogos Storytelling Festival

Can I just tell you how magical the Timpanogos Storytelling Fesitval was this last weekend? I’m sad to say that I had never been before and it’s practically in my back yard! This was the 20th year of the festival and it was absolutely fabulous.

Here’s my kids enjoying the puppetry!

Storytelling Puppets

I took my son to ‘Bed Time Stories’ and it was so fun to watch how enthralled he was at every storyteller. They have a true talent! I tried to retell one of the stories to my sister and did a horrible job. These storytellers are so gifted, turning an ordinary story into something magical!

My parents and I hit up the ‘Laugh In’ night, the culmination of the festival. 12 of the best storytellers from around the world were right there! I loved Angela Lloyd’s washboard playing, and Donald Davis’s snake story had my mom in hysterics! I was a child again, felling like I was there in the story!

Have you ever been to a Storytelling Festival? I can tell you that I’ll be going again next year!

  1. No, I’ve never been to a storytelling festival, but it sounds fantastic. Storytelling is such a wonderful art – and I don’t think it will ever go out of “style.”

  2. I had no idea that was going on every year around here–thank you so much for the post! We are in Kaysville… no problem to drive out there once a year with my two boys for that kind of fun!

  3. I went for the first time this year too! It is amazing!! My mom volunteered at the first aid and got 8 free family tickets! You can sign up to volunteer (even just to take tickets) and get a free ticket… fyi for next year. It is definitely alot of fun!
