JULY 2022

The North Columbia Schoolhouse will be celebrating 35 years of the fabulous Sierra Storytelling Festival in July 2022- instead of July 2020 or July 2021…- giving our community ample time to marinate on great stories until then!

After much consideration and consultation with those involved we have come to the conclusion that it is in the best interest of our audience, volunteers, vendors, artists and staff to postpone the 35th Annual Sierra Storytelling Festival until July 2022. The California Department of Public Health has issued a directive that all non-essential public gatherings be suspended or cancelled. With that and all the other considerations we feel this is the best course of action to pursue.

We would still love to hear from you!

Sierra Storytelling Festival is a dream for any storyteller/performer. Performing on stage under a ceiling of tree canopies, crisp sails, and blue skies; a warm and welcoming audience; delicious food and craft beer. Add to that a wide blend of stories and music and seriously, why would you do anything or go anywhere else that weekend?”- Kim Weitkamp
