PASS-IT-ON STORY TELLING FESTIVAL

On August 22nd 2015, The Huronia Museum along with theTown of Midland will be hosting a story telling festival. It will be known as the Pass-It-On Story telling festival. We are hoping it will become an annual event.

The Story telling will happen on two stages in Little Lake Park in Midland, and in our Huron Village at the Museum between the hours of 10 am and 4 pm. The park will be closed to traffic for the day to allow people to move between the story-telling stages, musical entertainment all of our great vendors. This promises to be a great day of stories and entertainment from near and far for the entire family

The day of the event coincides with a day of celebrating art at ArtWalk in downtown Midland.

Attached is a flyer that may be used to promote the event. If you wish I can also email a PDF version of the flyer. If you have any questions about the event, or would like to join us in telling a story or becoming a vendor please contact Jill Bremner or Veronica Blanchette here at the Museum!

Midland On Georgian Bay, has over 620 photographs and illustrations, many of which are full colour. It is beautifully designed and includes a detailed index. The book accurately captures the mood that defines Midland’s unique personality that is so strongly influenced by its location on the shores of Georgian Bay, often call the Sixth Great Lake. It takes the reader on the long journey from the earliest settlement of the Ouendat/Huron Nation to the inauguration of Midland’s Town Council in 2007.

It was a daunting task to distill into 300 pages, the huge amount of research and to choose from over 3,000 collected images to illustrate this book. The task was helped immensely by award-winning book designer, Kurt Schick, whose objectivitiy and creativity really made Midland on Georgian Bay a beautiful book.
