Welcome to the 30th Annual Kansas Storytelling Festival!

We extend our heartfelt gratitude to all the sponsors whose generous support has made the Kansas Storytelling Festival possible year after year. Without their unwavering dedication and commitment, our festival would not have thrived for three decades.

Our sponsors are not just contributors to our event—they are integral members of our communities, working tirelessly to make our communities better places to live and connect with one another. We encourage you to express your appreciation to these businesses and foundations for their generosity whenever you have the opportunity.


Storytelling has the remarkable power to bring us together, regardless of age, and to enrich our lives with its tales of wonder and wisdom. It educates our minds, inspires our hearts, and fosters a sense of belonging and understanding.

We invite you to join us in supporting this annual event in Kansas. If you would like to become a sponsor or underwrite a part of the Kansas Storytelling Festival, please reach out to the Festival steering committee at Together, we can continue to celebrate the magic of storytelling and create unforgettable experiences for years to come.
