Program Details

bird sculptures near lake in New HampshireThe morning begins at 8:00 am with registration and breakfast followed by some announcements and the keynote address at 9:00 am. This is followed by your first chance to tell your own story in the story swap circle.

Then who can resist the "free" lunch provided to us by our sponsors and board members? What a great time to get together and talk story.

Since the beginning, the afternoon concerts with multiple tellers have been a highlight.

This year there will be a concert of storytellers presenting stories, followed by story swap circles and ending with the closing concert featuring Sebastian Lockwood.

You can purchase tickets for this concert below or at the door on the day of the concert.
