Big Fibbers 2018 Schedule

The Big Fibbers Storytelling Festival

Because online ticketing is down we have reduced the price for the “Festival Swatch” to the “online” price ($25) AT THE DOOR Friday Night. This swatch will get you into ALL public festival events except for the two workshops. The workshops will cost an additional $25.

Please note that a previously scheduled extra event, “Through the Eyes of York,” had to be cancelled a couple of weeks ago, but ALL other festival events are definitely ON. If you see an old Facebook (or other) post that mentions “York” please ignore it.

The festival includes events for all ages:
• The Debby Brown YoungTales Storytelling clubs for elementary school children begins with meetings in schools all over the area.
• On campus storytelling performances take place during the festival week at each participating school.
• Public performances for all ages featuring national, regional, and local storytellers
• The signature Big Fibbers Contest for adults features tall-tale storytellers from all over
• The Debby Brown YoungTales Story Competition features storytellers 17 and under with stories of all genres.
