For thousands of years, the role of the storyteller has been to educate, entertain, and enchant listeners, young and old. Storytelling celebrates the wisdom and diversity of human experience, often using music, movement, and drama to engage listeners. This most ancient of the human arts captures and heals the human heart. Storytelling is a powerful art form that includes folktales, myths, legends, tall tales, religious stories, and personal stories.
The PowellsWood Storytelling Festival is made possible through the generous support of Diane and Monte Powell, owners of PowellsWood Garden, and the efforts of Des Moines resident Dr. Margaret Read MacDonald. The festival is co-sponsored by the Seattle Storytellers Guild.
