For nearly 30 years, the Weber State University Storytelling Festival has become one of the premier cultural events in Northern Utah. The Festival has garnered national and state awards and an international reputation for nurturing the art of storytelling. The Festival is best known for our efforts in bringing large numbers of youth storytellers to the stage. This could not have happened without the stellar support of the University, local school districts, foundations, businesses, and individual sponsors.

The Weber State University Storytelling Festival invites you to become a sponsor for our annual festival. Plans have been made for events that will appeal to every age group. Nationally and regionally acclaimed storytellers will capture your heart and create an unforgettable experience in literacy, culture, and the arts. Again, this year, with the support of festival sponsors, all events will be free. By not charging for the storytelling events, we are able to encourage more involvement from schools, families, and individuals in the community.

All donors at the following levels will be recognized in the festival program.

We would like to thank the following individuals and groups, who are sponsors of this year’s festival.
Please consider joining them. Monthly payments can be arranged.
