Story Slam 2019: It’s About Time

THIS EVENT IS SOLD-OUT! Stand-by at the door. 

Our infamous Story Slam will once again open the Festival, on Thursday night, March 28, 2019.

Catch the flavor of last year’s stories here.

The 2019 Story Slam theme matches our Bookfest theme. So, each story must contain the phrase, “It’s About Time!”

This event is a classic Woodstock evening, celebrating the joy and art of storytelling.


This makes for a rollicking good time. You’ll be hard-pressed to find a more supportive and interactive audience than this one.

The winner goes home with a Woodstock Bookfest goody bag, overflowing with prizes from our sponsors

Host for the event is Ida Hakkila, whose voice you’ll recognize from her glorious radio show, “The Heavy Light Show”.

Come cheer on the storytellers!
