Jeff Gaynor is the MC this year. Jeff wears many hats in the Ann Arbor area: besides being a interesting and fun teller in the Guild he is a member of the School Board (who believes in high standards and equity) and a retired classroom school teacher.  He will also be telling a story.

Other local favorite tellers include:  Beverly Black, Mike Cox, Glen Modell, Lorelle Otis, Jennifer Otto, Judy Sima, and Patti Smith.

Mark your Calendars for the StoryFest Family Fun Concert: January (date and time to be announced)
This year we are having our family fun concert in the evening in January. Kids can be ready for bed and watch bedtime stories virtually with the whole family. Guild members will tell stories that will inspire imagination, giggles and more.


We have chosen to make our concerts available without admission charge. Donations are much appreciated. StoryFest is the Ann Arbor Storytellers’ Guild’s biggest concert of the year. We use the proceeds from the concert to further our mission which is to promote, perpetuate, and celebrate the art of storytelling.

This is the Guild’s 30th annual StoryFest and we are delighted to offer another interesting and enjoyable program to the community. Come celebrate this ancient art form with us. It is through our stories that we connect with each other and see how we are alike, while also acknowledging the richness of our diversity.
