Telling Tales is known for its amazing events that include Celebrating Graphic Novels, our Main Event and Nature Tales. Our events are attended by thousands of visitors each year and bring together the very best Canadian talent. Our festival offers an opportunity for children to connect with their favourite authors, illustrators and storytellers.

Telling Tales Festival is recognized as one of the key annual events in Canadian publishing, dedicated solely to children’s literature. It is a Top 100 Festivals and Events Ontario award winner.

Our 2020 event looked much different than other years as we brought our festival online for the first time ever. We were thrilled to have over 30 presenters share their books, illustrations, stories and more!
