Metro Detroit is wonderfully diverse and full of unique stories. Whether you are curious about the cultural history of our great city or interested in the art of storytelling, we invite you to join us for our third annual Storytellers Festival at the Detroit Historical Museum on Sunday, April 10 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. 

During the Storyteller’s Festival, representatives from several of Detroit’s ethnic communities will share their heritage through storytelling and traditional song and dance, highlighting their customs and unique storytelling traditions.

Throughout the day, you will hear stories about Detroit’s dynamic innovators of past and present, the everyday people who overcame obstacles to make a difference in Detroit and our region. Explore creative ways to share your own stories through crafts and activities, or attend a storytelling workshop. This free program is ideal for families looking for a fun way to explore the diversity and rich cultural traditions that make up Detroit!
