What the Festival contributes:

Highlighting the importance of storytelling …

All year, storytellers from the Festival, both adults and exceptional quality student storytellers (the Ambassador Club), are featured at community events at malls, festivals and other locations. Their participation in these events has helped emphasize the importance of storytelling as a vehicle both for communicating literature and human values and for providing family entertainment that promotes interaction between people of all ages.
