The ancient art of storytelling is a 21st century cultural phenomenon, and Queen Anne's County will be hosting the second annual Chesapeake Storytelling Festival September 2017.

The Queen Anne's County Arts Council in partnership with Chesapeake College presents the second annual Queen Anne's County Storytelling Festival on September 16, 2017 at three venues on the college's campus. Performers will include nationally-touring, professional storytellers.

While storytelling events draw thousands of patrons in many areas of the country, this will be the SECOND storytelling festival on the Eastern Shore of Maryland.

With more than 900 seats in the Todd Performing Arts Center and the 120-seat Cadby Studio Theatre, Chesapeake is an ideal location for this community arts event. Patrons will also enjoy family-friendly outdoor concerts and activities across the campus. The event will include food vendors and free parking.

"Chesapeake College is an integral part of the arts and cultural community here on the Shore, and we're excited to be a part of this inaugural festival," said Chesapeake President Drive. Barbara Viniar.
