Ontario's busy capital is home to many annual festivals. Storytelling is no exception. This long-running tradition so rich in history has, in the past, been enjoyed by both young and old. It has certainly made a place for itself in the big city. Read on to learn more about the Toronto Storytelling Festival (TSF) and why you may want to clear your calendar to attend (it begins Friday!).
The TSF was launched in 1979. With small beginnings, it has since grown to become one of North America's largest celebrations of storytelling, both traditional and contemporary. In its first year, the Festival was held on April 1st and storytellers welcomed the Spring season with their intriguing tales. Since then, by tradition, it has continued to occupy this same time every year.
