This September, Telling Tales returns to a live and in-person festival with 2 fun-filled days of programming, 5 stages featuring your favourite authors, illustrators, and storytellers, and over 40 presenters representing the best in Canadian children’s literature and arts!
After two years of staying home and experiencing stories virtually, we are excited to present an event that will allow festival goers to Open a Book, Open a World. Telling Tales is excited to launch its 2022–23 season to bring these stories to you in a new hybrid format.
In addition to our in-person festival, we will continue to offer virtual programming with an all-star lineup of presenters sharing their stories and engaging audiences both near and far. Both Celebrating Graphics Novels and our Imagination Station series will feature virtual interactive presentations from an award-winning, diverse lineup, whose unique backgrounds and experiences reflect those of our audience.
We are thrilled to announce the new home for the Telling Tales Festival is Hendrie Park at Royal Botanical Gardens. Enjoying stories in a beautiful natural setting has long been a part of the Telling Tales’ vision for promoting healthy family experiences, and creating meaningful connections with nature and literature
From our signature events to our year-round programming, we believe that through inspiring a love of reading, stories can change people’s lives.
