Presenter submissions for 2018 are now closed.

The 10th Annual Telling Tales Family Festival of Stories will take place on Sunday, September 16, 2018, at the picturesque Westfield Heritage Village situated just west of Hamilton in Rockton, Ontario.

Annually, we showcase over 30 of Canada’s leading children’s authors, illustrators, storytellers and musicians. The Telling Tales Selection Committee is eager to hear your ideas for our 10th anniversary year. First and foremost, we must know that the presenter has proven presentation skills. To support this please complete the submission form as fully as possible.

Submissions were accepted between October 13, 2017 until December 30, 2017.

We are aiming to have the 2018 line-up confirmed in March at which point we will ramp up our marketing efforts including an extensive social media plan that has been designed to extend the festival experience before and long after the festival weekend.

Telling Tales is growing. In addition to the annual Festival in September, we offer a variety of workshops and events throughout the year.  As part of the submission process, please include your interest in participating in this exciting new piece of the Telling Tales story.

Printed material and sample copies may be sent to:
