35th Annual Sierra Storytelling Festival

Steve Sanfield loved the craft of storytelling, and delighted in the art. Thirty-five years ago he dreamed of bringing the best storytellers from around the nation to a schoolhouse crowning a ridge, and now thirty-five years later, the Sierra Storytelling Festival is joyously continuing Steve’s vision.

Join us the third weekend in July for three days of the art and craft of the best tellers at the historic North Columbia Schoolhouse.
