OGDEN, Utah (ABC4 News) – A unique festival is returning to Weber State University for its 23rd year.

The University’s award-winning Storytelling Festival comes to Ogden, February 25-27, and it will bring with it performances from around the world. This year’s theme is “Stories from My Culture.”

“The WSU Storytelling Festival is so fantastic because we are able to get the best national storytellers, while at the same time collaborating with local schools, districts and community members,” said DeAnna Mower, assistant professor of teacher education and festival chair. “Everyone finds excitement, history and entertainment in the varied stories that are shared.”

Scheduled to appear for the 2019 festival is award-winning storyteller Ed Stivender; Israeli actress and author Noa Baum; internationally acclaimed Antonio Rocha; and actress Jasmin Cardenas.

The WSU Storytelling Festival, according to the National Storytelling Network, is the largest youth storytelling festival in the world. This year’s festival will highlight 70 youth storytellers from local schools.

“If you haven’t been to the festival before, join us this time,” Mower said. “It will be on your calendar every year afterward.”
