Welcome to the 25th Weber State University Storytelling Festival. The first festival took place for only one day on the Weber State campus. This year, through the wonders of technology and due to a world-wide pandemic, we are holding the festival for 25 days from the comfort from our own homes. Each day, new links on the calendar will go live with stories told by national, regional and youth storytellers! Every five days, we will introduce a new theme, ranging from fables to personal narratives. Come back often to see your favorite tellers and listen to some of the best entertainment you will find on the internet today!
