Events will be held at a variety of locations including the Davis Conference Center in Layton, the David Eccles Conference Center, Perry's Egyptian Theater, the Children’s Treehouse Museum, local schools and WSU’s main campus.
According to organizers, the festival is unique because it combines the talents of both professional and youth storytellers from local schools. Youth storytellers from local charter schools as well as public schools in the Weber, Ogden, Davis and Morgan school districts compete at district festivals. The winners are invited to perform at the festival.
