Storytelling Festival by the Sea

11th & G Sts.
Presbyterian Church
Arcata, CA

The Festival begins with music and stories on Friday night, and continues all day Saturday and into the evening closing with our Festival Finale.
You and your family are welcome to come to part of the Festival or attend the whole magical event.

One of the regular Festival features is Story Swaps where anyone with a 5-minute story (or less) has the opportunity to tell it live to an audience. Beginners or experienced tellers are welcome to participate. Sign up at the registration table early. A traditional Story Swap will be offered during the lunch hour while we expand on the theme of “Round Robin,” an impromptu story told by whomever participates.
The Catering: Teri’s Custom Catering and Cakes offers delicious dinner options for attendees on Saturday. The Menu includes either Teriyaki Alaskan Wild Salmon, Chicken, or Teriyaki Tofu (specify in pre-sales), sesame noodle salad, sushi rice salad, green salad, bread, drinks and cake.
See Fee Schedule for meal price.  Please pre order dinners, if possible, to ensure your your meal will be waiting for you.
The Festival is produced by the North Coast Storytellers Guild, a program of the Ink People Center for the Arts. Registration materials are available at local Chamber of Commerce offices and public libraries.
