For 26 years, the Timpanogos Storytelling Festival has invited storytellers from around the nation and across the waters to join some of our homegrown talent and share stories under our own majestic Mount Timpanogos. These are some of the best storytellers from around the world. This year’s group features Grammy and Emmy Award winners and entertainers who have performed on some of the world’s most prestigious stages including the Smithsonian, Kennedy Center, World’s Fair, British National Theatre, Barbican, Getty Villa, and more.
Between storytelling performances, there is something to keep everyone happy and involved. Regional groups perform live music, professional potters help the young and old make their own pottery on pottery wheels, jugglers roam the park, local restaurants are on hand with fresh food, and puppet shows delight the little ones.
The Festival begins Thursday evening with Look Who’s Talking! It continues all day Friday and Saturday with evening shows both days as well. Come join us for an evening show or the whole weekend; either way we are sure you’ll be hooked! Interested attendees are encouraged to come early for the Timpanogos Storytelling Conference (September 2-3). Visit timpfest.org/events/2015-timpanogos-storytelling-festival for information.
