Madison Storytellers festival is a joint effort by the Madison Downtown Development Commission, Madison Culture & Arts Alliance and the Madison Chamber of Commerce that “celebrates the storytellers in our community, and empowers everyone to find new inspiration and skills to tell their own stories,” event organizers said.

“It is critical that each of us is empowered to tell our stories, to express our vision of who we are as individuals and how we fit together as a whole.”

The significance of storytelling is threefold, according to organizers.

“Storytelling is the expression of who we are, who we were and who we hope to be,” they said. “It encompasses both experience and identity, and is what brings us together as a culture.”

Vendor spaces are available for $75 on a first come, first served basis for authors, publishers, artists, crafters, educational providers and others. Click here to apply.

For sponsorship information, contact the Madison Downtown Development Commission by email at ddc@rosenet.org or by phone at 973-593-3042, ext. 3101.
