​Storytelling Festival Opens Doors to New Worlds

35th Annual Festival Saturday, Sept. 30

Explore new worlds through stories as Wake County’s library and park systems come together to present the 35th Annual Storytelling Festival. The festival features food, activities and storytelling for all ages.

The event will take place, rain or shine, on Saturday, Sept. 30, from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m. at Historic Oak View County Park, located at 4028 Carya Drive in Raleigh.

Families are encouraged to bring chairs or blankets to sit on as they spend the fall day listening to tales told by nationally-celebrated storytellers, including Heather Forest, Sherry Norfolk and Bobby Norfolk. Cran Úll will perform Celtic music for attendees. Families can also enjoy songs on the wagon shuttle and hands-on learning experiences in the activity tent.

The park will be open to visitors during the entire event.
