Experience the joy of storytelling
Wit, Wisdom and Wonder! 


September 12-13, 2014
Lititz, Pennsylvania

New location in the same great town!
NEW VENUE:  The 3rd Annual Lititz Storytelling Festival has a new venue in 2014!   The new auditorium at the Warwick Middle School offers an intimate theater experience with state-of-the art sound and light. We think you'll love it!
Festival Overview

The Festival offers a variety of storytelling styles and story genre.  You'll hear Appalachian story delivered by Donald Davis, and small-town tales brought by humorist, Philip Gulley.  Experience the exuberance of Bill Harley, whose hilarious stories paint a vibrant picture of growing up! Listen to powerful stories and folktales in the African oral tradition presented in song and story by TAHIRA.  See if you can figure-out when Kim Weitkamp's stories have crossed from possibly a "real story" into a very imaginative "tall tale."  Delight in the fractured fairy tales told by Marie Winger, and in the "Lost Dollar" Americana stories of Charles Kiernan.  


Friday 7 -10 pm 
The Festival begins with the return of the popular Americana humorist, Phillip Gulley, and Lancaster storyteller, Marie Winger.
