Telling Tales

September 24 - September 25


This September, Telling Tales returns to a live and in-person festival with 2 fun-filled days of programming, 5 stages featuring your favourite authors, illustrators, and storytellers, and over 40 presenters representing the best in Canadian children’s literature and arts!

After two years of staying home and experiencing stories virtually, we are excited to present an event that will allow festival goers to Open a Book, Open a World. Telling Tales is excited to launch its 2022–23 season to bring these stories to you in a new hybrid format.

We are thrilled to announce the new home for the Telling Tales Festival is Hendrie Park at Royal Botanical Gardens. Enjoying stories in a beautiful natural setting has long been a part of the Telling Tales’ vision for promoting healthy family experiences, and creating meaningful connections with nature and literature.

Pre-registration required.
