Hear stories that soar beyond your wildest imagination and venture deep within your heart at the 31st annual Florida Storytelling Festival, being held March 5 to 8, 2015, at historic Lakeside Inn in Mount Dora, Florida. Attendees will 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.
Featured performers this year include Appalachian storyteller Sheila Kay Adams; master storyteller and face painter, Christopher Agostino; Volusia/Flagler County Natural Awakenings publisher and Cajun storyteller, Cheryl Floyd; The Cracker Cowboy Poet, Hank Mattson; and Caribbean dancer, drummer, singer and storyteller, Lucrece Louisdhon-Louinis.
