No horsing around! Come enjoy stories for all ages, on Saturday, September 16, 2017, from noon to 6 p.m. Storytellers from throughout New Jersey and Tri-State area will convene at Howell Living History Farm (www.HowellFarm.org) in Lambertsville, New Jersey as the finest storytellers will be offering bales of laughter with farm-related stories and more.


 Start the day with the festival's hallmark workshop to explore storytelling techniques and strategies, a boon for tellers and teachers alike. It is free and open to the public. Registration is required. Seating is limited.


The Story Slam takes place from noon to 1 PM with the theme “The Last Straw” to begin the fun; contestants are chosen at random to recount a 5 minute-or-less personal story. Oni Lasana took 1st place in the Story Slam last year...but will sit this year out to give other tellers a chance to win.  

  A continuous rotation of tellers will perform throughout the farm from 1 to 5 PM, followed by the festival’s signature close, the Lightning Round, from 5 to 6 PM.  All are encouraged to participate!
