About the Festival



2012-06-26 590 fort-edmonton-church   The TALES Festival has been around for over 25 years. In 2015 we are making the move from Fort Edmonton Park to Old Strathcona. The great news for festival goers is that daytime storytelling sets are now completely free! 

The festival kicks off with school programming on Thursday May 22nd. The public kick off is our Story Slam at The Pint Thursday evening.

On Saturday night we have a concert. Ruth Stewart-Verger tells the story of Marie-Anne Lagimodiere in story and song.

We also have workshops for storytellers Friday evening and Sunday morning. 

There's a story for everyone!
