Due to the coronavirus pandemic, we have had to cancel the 2020 Storytelling Festival. We are very grateful to all the loyal sponsors we have had for the past four years, and we hope you will continue to support our effort to bring national storytellers to Paris and Carlisle. 

Although we have had to cancel the May event, we have been very fortunate in having each of the storytellers commit to coming in the fall individually through the months of August through November. They have also committed to performing at next year’s Paris Storytelling Festival scheduled for May 7 – 9, 2021. We hope that those who have contributed to this year’s festival will allow us to use their contributions for the fall events. Thank you for your continued support.

Last year, thanks to the generosity of our sponsors, people who purchased tickets for our fundraising storytelling dinner and the hard work of scores of volunteers, the Paris Storytelling Festival brought the magic of storytelling free of charge to more than 5,000 children and adults in Bourbon and Nicholas Counties.
