The 26th Bay Area Storytelling Festival!
May 19–20, 2012, Craneway Pavilion, Richmond, CA
The 2012 Bay Area Storytelling Festival is proud to feature Tlingit Raven dancer, storyteller and musician, Gene Tagaban , Celtic harper and storyteller, Patrick Ball, and lively stories from America's heartland told by Beth Horner. In addition, we bring the world folktales to our own backyard with showcase tellers Jill Johnson andMichael Katz.
In addition to the storyteller's concerts, we offer a children's program, storytelling workshops, open mic sessions, and for the first time this year, a Story Slam! To cap off the weekend, we have scheduled a solar eclipse for Sunday evening; astronomers and telescopes will be on hand to enhance our viewing. See the festival schedule for details.
This year, the Bay Area Storytelling Festival takes place just inches away from the Bay, at the award-winning, historic Craneway Pavilion, part of the Rosie the Riveter/WWII Home Front National Historical Park.
