2013 PowellsWood Storytelling Festival
July 26th & 27th 2013
PowellsWood: A Northwest Garden plays host to this annual 2-day festival of the art of storytelling.
The first day, internationally-renowned storytellers play host to registered guests with workshops designed to turn everyday people into tellers of their own stories. Full-pass participants even get a chance at "Tea With the Tellers" on PowellsWood's fabled Garden Room Terrace.
The second day, it's all telling, all the time, with special secret spots in the 3-acre garden set up with tents featuring storytelling tracks for adults, families, and children.
