See ‘Ewes’ at the New Jersey Storytelling Festival!

September 15 @ 12:00 pm - 6:00 pm

 

Join talented tellers from throughout New Jersey and the tri-state area Saturday, September 15, for the 26th New Jersey Storytelling Festival and hear a whole new crop of stories cultivating good times for all ages at Howell Living History Farm, 70 Woodens Lane, Hopewell Township.

The fun begins with the Story Slam from noon to 1 p.m. Contestants are chosen at random to recount a 5-minute or less personal tale on the theme of “Chicken!” A continuous rotation of tellers will perform throughout the farm from 1 to 5 p.m., followed by the festival’s signature close, the Lightning Round, in which tellers will tell tales no longer than 2 minutes in quick succession, from 5 to 6 p.m.

Before the festival, noted storyteller Rona Leventhal will explore storytelling techniques and strategies for a developing personal stories in a morning workshop entitled “It’s Your Story—Tell It!” The workshop is free and open to the public but registration is required as seating is limited.

Please be sure to wear comfortable shoes and bring a refillable water bottle. Water pumps are available for your use. Food items will also be available for purchase.
