Storytelling Festivals


Cowboy Poet, Cook, and Storyteller, Kent Rollins
Featured Teller for 2014
 Get an earful of delightful stories at the 8th annual SPIRIT OF OKLAHOMA STORYTELLING FESTIVAL to be held on June 13-14, 2014 in the Webster Commons on the campus of Southern Nazarene University in Bethany, Oklahoma. 
The two-day festival is an annual event that includes story swaps, concerts, ghost tales, a silent auction, vendors, workshops, and more.  Previously held in Seminole, this year marks a move to the metro area to bring great stories told by artisans of the art of storytelling.

The evening concert begins at 7:00. The ghost tales free concert is Friday night at 9:30 pm.  Tellers will shake your socks off with tales of haunts and 'haints'. Saturday will be a day-long feast of stories with mini- concerts, story swaps, table-talks, ghost tales, evening spotlight story concerts, and more.
Cowboy poet and storyteller Kent Rollins is our headliner this year.  Rollins, a native of Hollis, Oklahoma, has made his mark in sharing his ranch style cooking spiced with poems and stories in such places as Pigeon Forge and has been named the Official Chuck Wagon Cook of Oklahoma.  He’ll not be cooking but he will be stirring up some delightful stories for the festival.  In addition, dozens of state, regional and national tellers will add their special flare.  Don't miss it!
