Weber State University Storytelling Festival

Celebrating Stories Past, Present, and Future

Come one, come all and join us for the 24rd Annual Weber State University Storytelling Festival, Monday through Wednesday, February 24–26, 2020, with performances by nationally and internationally acclaimed storytellers Kuniko Yamamoto, Sherry Norfolk, and Bobby Norfolk, plus many Utah and youth tellers! 

We would especially like to thank our sponsors for their ongoing support. Because of their generous donations, all Storytelling Festival events are free to the public (with the exception of the fundraising dinner). 

Weber State University, in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act, ensures equal access to all university functions, activities, and programs for individuals with disabilities.  Please contact Patricia Cieslak at 801-626-7515 at least one week prior to this event to request accommodations in relation to a disability. 


Youth Storytellers

The Weber Storytelling Festival is one of the largest festivals involving youth storytellers.  Local school districts and charter schools host youth storytelling festivals to select students to participate in the annual Weber Storytelling Festival.

Storyteller Auditions

Each festival session includes regional storytellers—talented people from the surrounding communities with the ability to inspire and entertain audiences of all ages. Auditions are open to anyone who is interest, and are held in September.  


This two-day workshop is offered in June for teachers and parents to learn more about storytelling: how to teach youth storytellers, how to teach through storytelling, and how to integrate storytelling in other subjects in the school curriculum.
