Festival to tell its own story
August 29, 2012 by James
Starting tomorrow Thursday, August 30 and continuing until Saturday, September 1, the Timpanogos Storytelling Festival will be taking place in Orem, Utah. Performances and workshops vary throughout this three day event, so please check the website for times, locations, and the three allocated parking spaces. A shuttle service from parking to the event is available.
The Timpanogos Storytelling Festival is an annual event that happens at the end of summer each year. Guests will enjoy performances based on storytelling events, taking place every hour in six different tents. Each year, people from across the United States come to hear the great stories and watch the spectacular mimes, jugglers, and puppetry. A number of performing folk musicians will provide entertainment on the grounds, as well as a wealth of vendors with colorful tents and wares to sell.
Some of this year’s storytellers include Dovie Thomason, Kim Weitkamp, Antonio Sacre, Sam Payne, Clare Murphy, Waddie Mitchell, John McCutcheon, Bill Harley and Donald Davis. There will be the annual ‘My Favorite Stories and Laughin’ Night’ that will occur at the SCERA Shell, which is a theater located outdoors at 699 S. State Street. Besides these events, there are a number of workshops scheduled to take place at various locations.
Poster printing, flyer printing, and brochure printing may have been used to advertise and promote this event across the nation. The costs to attend vary depending on whether a single day or a weekend pass is purchased.
