Metro Detroit is wonderfully diverse and full of stories. Whether you are curious about cultural history or interested in the art of storytelling, we invite you to join us for our fourth annual Storytellers Festival on Sunday, April 2.
During the Storyteller’s Festival, representatives from several of Detroit’s ethnic communities will share their heritage through storytelling and traditional song and dance, highlighting their customs and unique storytelling traditions. Throughout the day, you will hear stories about Detroit’s dynamic innovators of past and present and the everyday people who overcame obstacles to make a difference in Detroit and our region. Explore creative ways to share your own stories through crafts and activities, or attend a storytelling workshop. Admission is FREE!
