We are looking forward to our 29th annual Festival. Thank you to all the sponsors who helped make the Kansas Storytelling Festival possible. The Kansas Storytelling Festival would never have continued for so many years without the tremendous support of our generous sponsors. These same sponsors are the business people and foundations that help make our communities better places to live and enjoy each other, so tell them 'thank you' for their generosity when you see them.


Storytelling brings all of us closer, no matter our age, enriches our lives, educates our minds, and inspires our hearts. You can be a part of this event. If you would like to help sponsor or underwrite a part of the Kansas Storytelling Festival, please contact the Festival steering committee at for ideas on how to help.
