June 28 & 29, 2024

Called the Queen of Storytelling Festivals, the 37th annual Sierra Storytelling Festival will be held the last weekend in June: June 28th & 29th, on Friday and Saturday. It kicks off with a thought-stirring workshop at 1 pm and concludes with happy hearts, faith in humanity, and full souls on Saturday night.

The Festival provides opportunities for the amateur to tell, for children to be delighted, and for some of the best national-circuit tellers to share with their treasured audience. 

If you enjoy listening to a good story, this is the event for you. Our storytellers will entertain listeners of all ages with tales from around the world and close to home. Bring friends and family and picnic on the lawn, slow down, turn off the phone and soak in the stories of world-class tellers.


We have decided to keep our ticket prices the same as the last few years despite inflation in the cost of everything else! Become a North Columbia Schoolhouse Member and receive an even lower cost. For additional savings, we offer Early Bird Tickets  at a discounted rate, on sale from March 1- June 1st through our website.

Sierra Storytelling Festival is a dream for any storyteller/performer. Performing on stage under a ceiling of tree canopies, crisp sails, and blue skies; a warm and welcoming audience; delicious food and craft beer. Add to that a wide blend of stories and music and seriously, why would you do anything or go anywhere else that weekend?”- Kim Weitkamp
