Florida Storytelling Festival in Mount Dora
Hear stories that soar beyond your wildest imagination and venture deep within your heart at the 31st annual Florida Storytelling Festival, March 5-8 at historic Lakeside Inn in Mount Dora. Enjoy storytelling concerts, workshops, story swaps, and a storytelling cruise. Younger audiences will listen, learn and tell in the Youthful Voices Family Fun Tent. It is a festival for those who want to be entertained and those who would learn how to participate in an art form that has spanned the ages.
Highlights of the festival include storytelling concerts Thursday through Saturday evening and Sunday morning; Tell and Talk sessions on Friday and Saturday offer a chance to interact with the featured performers; and the Swapping Grounds Competition offers a chance to present your story during the Saturday night concert. In the Family Fun Tent, kids can make puppets and masks, learn how to face-paint, and participate in workshops and swaps to explore their own storytelling voice. Plus, featured storyteller and Publisher of Natural Awakenings Volusia-Flagler County edition, Cheryl Floyd brings her Cajun roots and loving heart to the stage with every tale she tells.
