Events Description

Storytelling Toronto presents the 42nd annual Toronto Storytelling Festival! This is one of the world’s largest and oldest urban storytelling celebrations, and has been a major force in the international renaissance of storytelling. We’ve pioneered grassroots storytelling in the community, and especially the importance of storytelling as a way to build inter-cultural and inter-generational bridges.

We open with StoryFire (March 7-20), independent events highlighting creative diversity in self-produced shows across the city.

Storytelling At The Tranzac Club (March 15) showcases our stellar local tellers during a full day of adult programming.

Festival Week (March 21-29) features international, national, and local tellers spinning bright threads of traditional and personal stories in performance and at Storytellers’ Camp workshops.

Our 2020 theme is Conviviality: gathering with radical hospitality and inclusivity to enrich our relationships with each other and the natural world.

Creative cultural leadership is needed, now more than ever, for us to re-imagine our world and our way forward together. We hope the fabric of the festival will be as brilliant and inspiring as this festival image created by Luciana Baptista-Cohen, featuring the original design and beautiful handwork of Jose Brown.
