The New Jersey Storytelling Festival

Our 25th Year!

No horsing around! Come enjoy stories for all ages, on Saturday, September 16, 2017, from noon to 6 p.m. Storytellers from throughout New Jersey and Tri-State area will convene at Howell Living History Farm offering bales of laughter with farm-related stories and more.

Start the day with the festival's hallmark workshop to explore storytelling techniques and strategies, a boon for tellers and teachers alike. It is free and open to the public. Registration is required. Seating is limited.

The Story Slam takes place from noon to 1 PM with the theme “The Last Straw” to begin the fun; contestants are chosen at random to recount a 5 minute-or-less personal story.

 A continuous rotation of tellers will perform throughout the farm from 1 to 5 PM, followed by the festival’s signature close, the Lightning Round, from 5 to 6 PM.  All are encouraged to participate!


 We will look forward to seeing you there!
