FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: (Wednesday, July 29, 2015)

Huronia Museum to Host First Annual “Pass It On”  Storytelling Festival on August 22nd, 2015 in Little Lake Park

Huronia Museum is pleased to announce that it will be hosting the first annual “Pass it On” Storytelling Festival on August 22nd, 2015 in Little Lake Park from 10 am to 4 pm.

The Pass-It-On Storytelling Festival aims to create experiences of discovery and delight through the art of storytelling.  Huronia Museum is taking a leading role in heritage preservation by bringing first-class local and guest storytellers to the people of Huronia to engage in one of humanity’s earliest art forms. The museum ultimately places to an ongoing, annual festival that enriches the hearts, and minds of our community.

Visitors to this first annual storytelling festival will enjoy two storytelling venues in Little Lake Park.  Stories can be heard from the Rotary Stage and in the museum’s own Huron Ouendat Longhouse.  Visitors can expect a special performance in the afternoon by the Bicycle Opera, an opera company which travels to communities solely by bicycle.   A children’s craft area for little story listeners will also be located within the Festival pathways.   Vendors, other performances and food services by  ELM Catering will also be located in Little Lake Park on the day of the festival making it a reason to come to Little Lake Park and stay for the day.

Huron Village open

By chance I had two conversations with local residents who thought (incorrectly) that the Huron Village was not open and that the village long house was not open.  WRONG, WRONG, WRONG.

The Huron Village is open, its longhouse is complete and can be entered and experienced.  Please come and visit.
