The Warwick Education Foundation proudly presents the annual Lititz Storytelling Festival, September 27 and 28, 2019.
Now in its eighth year, this popular event has developed into a premier showcase for the art of storytelling and has garnered a Mid-Atlantic Spotlight Award from the National Storytelling Network. All stories are performed, rather than simply read, creating a truly interactive experience for the audience and recalling the vanishing art of oral tradition.
The 2019 Festival features an exceptional line-up. Attendees will hear hilarious tales and exaggerated circumstances by Bil Lepp; wit and humor by Regi Carpenter; classic historic tales by Sheila Arnold, and powerful traditional stories from varied cultures by Daniel Morden.
Each storyteller will perform on Friday and Saturday evenings and during the day on Saturday, telling different stories at each appearance. Attendees can learn from the masters and hone their own storytelling skills at a series of workshops, or sign up for the Story Swap to present their own story. The Story Swap is open to all levels of experience.
“The Lititz Storytelling Festival has something for everyone, regardless of age,” says Barbara Mobley, Executive Director for the Warwick Education Foundation. “Not to mention – ‘America’s Coolest Small Town’ provides the perfect backdrop for the event. We invite you to come for the weekend, relax, explore our award-winning community, and experience the wit, wisdom and wonder of exceptional storytelling!”
The Lititz Storytelling Festival will be held at the Warwick High School Auditorium and other venues in Lititz, PA. All seats are general admission and are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
Founders Brenda Burkholder and David Worth developed the Lititz Storytelling Festival into a must-attend event. The Warwick Education Foundation is honored to continue to build upon Brenda and Dave’s vision and success.
