Storytelling Orillia

Storytelling Orillia

Storytelling Orillia, established in 2011, welcomes tellers and listeners to a story circle on the last Sunday of each month from September to May, from 2-4 p.m. Circles often start with a presenter or have a theme, and then we take turns telling short, usually personal, stories. We started meeting via Zoom during the pandemic. 

Our two evening events each year are:

- Canadian Storytelling Night-Soirée national du conte, which began in Orillia in 2012. SO... set the theme until 2020, when themes began being decided by Storytellers of Canada-Conteurs du Canada, which has generously supported the initiative. A series of themes based on the elements of the traditional medicine wheel has invited tellers across the country to join in through SC-CC. Information is found at

- World Storytelling Day, focuses on the international theme and we either invite professional tellers or sometimes draw in Orillians who might not consider themselves storytellers, to tell their stories and hear from the audience. 

Please email to get alerts about circles and evening events.
