Thursday, Aug. 22-Saturday, Aug. 24
You hear about storytelling being an art form, and events like this one prove the point. The Oklahoma Storytelling Festival, which begins Thursday, Aug. 22, celebrates the pleasure of spinning tales and listening with workshops on technique, special performances with nationally acclaimed storytellers and family events at the Oklahoma History Center, 800 Nazih Zuhdi Drive, Oklahoma City. Whether they come from the cavernous depths of old tradition or breathe the contemporary air, good stories always find an audience. Tickets to Thursday and Friday evening performances are $10. The festival ends Saturday, Aug. 24, with a free evening performance at the Myriad Botanical Gardens lawn stage, 301 W. Reno Ave. Hear what happens next.
