* Telling Tales: Family Festival of Stories *

Sunday, September 19, 2010 - 10:00am



Come and spend a day of stories in many forms. Create a new annual family experience to take your grand-children to years from now. A place to discover what’s new and what’s never forgotten in the realm of children’s stories.

Telling Tales: A Family Festival of Stories at Westfield Heritage Village was thrilled to be named the winner in the category of Best Festival or Tourist Event/Medium and to receive honourable mention in the category of Rookie Event of the Year.

Big Names Already Confirmed -- Popular author Kenneth Oppel, CBC broadcaster and author Kevin Sylvester, ever-popular author-illustrator Jeremy Tankard, and local musician Jude Johnson are among the many presenters already confirmed for the second annual Telling Tales Festival. The event is free to attend, with donations to literacy gratefully accepted and encouraged. Last year, the first-ever Telling Tales festival drew more than 4,000 attendees to the storybook location of Westfield Heritage Village from across Ontario and established its unique mandate: to entertain children and families of all ages and to raise money for Hamilton-based literacy programs. Ken Setterington, children’s and youth advocate at the Toronto Public Library, and another confirmed 2010 festival presenter, adds: “It was a wonderful experience to watch the hundreds and hundreds of children captivated by Canadian Literature.”
