What the Festival contributes:

County-wide mini-festivals each Spring …

In February and March, children tell their stories at a series of mini-festivals throughout the County. Those children who meet the Storytelling Committee’s criteria for outstanding storytelling are deemed to be Festival Quality Storytellers and are invited to be featured storytellers at the culminating Festival in April. All children who learn stories are awarded a certificate thanking them for promoting the art of storytelling. Those children who are Festival Quality Storytellers are featured at the Festival and awarded gift books and ribbons at that event (approximately 500 each year).
