Tampa/Hillsborough County Storytelling Festival

2020 Featured Teller: Orisirisi African Folklore


The Tampa-Hillsborough County Storytelling Festival is produced by Tampa-Hillsborough County Public Library System and the City of Tampa Parks & Recreation Department, Creative Arts Theater, Hillsborough County Parks, Recreation, and Conservation Department, School District of Hillsborough County, the Tampa-Hillsborough County Storytelling Festival Committee with additional support from the Arts Council of Hillsborough County and the Hillsborough County Board of County Commissioners.

If you know someone who works for one of these community-minded businesses or have an opportunity to patronize these businesses, please take a moment to say “Thank you” on behalf of all the storytellers and story listeners in the region!

In order to keep the Festival free to the public, we must rely on donations so we can continue to teach children and introduce storytelling to the community. The Festival has been a part of Tampa for over 40 years and is seeking sponsorship from area organizations. Due to increased expenses, we must rely on sponsors more than ever. We need your help! Your gift can help keep the Tampa-Hillsborough County Storytelling Festival in full swing! The Festival can be reached at info@tampastory.org or at 813-273-3764. We will be glad to provide your organization with a sponsor information packet and details of sponsorship benefits.

Thanks to the generosity of our sponsors, we are able to bring this Festival to the community for free. Our 2020 Festival sponsors who provided monetary and in-kind support are:
