Here at Telling Tales we love telling stories, hearing stories and sharing stories.

This year, we’re celebrating our 15th Anniversary and can’t wait to take a walk down memory lane and hear your Telling Tales stories!

From our inaugural festival where we welcomed visitors to Westfield Heritage Village , to the numerous Canadian children’s authors, illustrators and storytellers we’ve welcomed to Telling Tales as our attendance grew over the years, we have so many fond memories.

As the world around us changed during the pandemic, we embraced the digital space and hosted our first virtual festival in 2020. When we were all safely able to come back together last year, we were thrilled to return to our in-person festival at our new home in Hendrie Gardens at the Royal Botanical Gardens [RBG]. It was a marvelous weekend and we can’t wait to see what the next 15 years will look like! 

Please take a moment to share your Telling Tales memories with us. As a thank you, we will be drawing a random winner from all entries received every month (March-December, 2023) and they will win a $150 gift certificate to A Different Drummer Books.
