St. Louis Storytelling Festival Grand Finale 2013
The St. Louis Storytelling Festival is a four-day spring extravaganza at more than 25 area locations. The grand finale takes place at the Touhill.
The 2013 festival features the best national as well as regional storytellers. All are unique in their telling styles, content and storytelling personalities. Now in its 34th year, more than 700,000 people have experienced this festival that has achieved national and international acclaim.
More than 95 events and over 50 storytellers converge on various historic sites, including the Gateway Arch, University of Missouri– St. Louis, Missouri Historical Society, Missouri Botanical Garden and multiple library branches. The grand finale takes place at the Touhill Performing Arts Center and offers performances by all featured storytellers.
The St. Louis Storytelling Festival is an example of how a public university provides an important cultural service to the community and involves a wide array of community organizations and individuals. It has inspired other organizations such as the University of Manitoba to host the Winnipeg International Storytelling Festival.
Year after year, audiences are inspired by the telling of tales and sharing in the performances. Join the 2013 St. Louis Storytelling Festival as it connects the community through stories.
