May 2, 3 and 4, 2013
Celebrating 26 Years of Stories that Touch Your Heart!
in Jackson, Michigan
featuring Mary Hamiliton & Dan Keding
Welcome One and All
It all started with a spark of an idea on a plane returning from the National Storytelling Festival in Jonesborough, Tennessee. Over twenty-five years later, almost 150,000 children, youth, and adults, have shared in the unique experience of Jackson Storyfest.
Held the first weekend of May each year, Storytellers from all over the United States bring their special stories to Jackson, Michigan; where audiences of all ages share in the laughter, the tears, and the memories.
Join us May 2nd, 3rd and 4th, 2013 for Jackson Storyfest, celebrating over 25 Years of “Stories to Tickle, Tug and Touch You” – where national storytellers Mary Hamilton and Dan Keding will delight adult and teen audiences, Friday and Saturday evenings and Gemini will bring their magic to the Family Matinee, on Saturday. A special performance for Senior Citizens will be held Thursday.
The flame of excitement will ignite on Friday morning, May 3rd, when the streets of Jackson fill with children and their teachers to enjoy the 18 exceptional tellers who will be performing at sites throughout downtown Jackson. Our goal – to help children understand that we are all part of a larger community united through the love of stories!
We hope to see you May 2nd, 3rd & 4th in downtown Jackson, Michigan!
