Everfest stands in solidarity with the Black community and supports the fight for justice and equality. We will be donating the first month of each new vendor & artist subscription to the Austin Justice Coalition. We encourage you to join us and consider supporting the Austin Justice Coalition or the organization leading the ongoing movement for accountability and change in your community.
Maybe it was a random poem someone recited during an open mic. Maybe your grandmother sat you down as a child and told you what life was like when she was a kid. Maybe it was the time your mother or father sat bedside, reading through “Goodnight Moon” or “Where the Wild Things Are” two or three times before you finally drifted into a dream. Whatever it was, it was a form of storytelling, a time-honored art form that is celebrated at storytelling festivals in cities from Vancouver, British Columbia, to the Bay Area. Gather round, folks, and let me tell you a tale. Whether through verse, spoken word or clever rhyme, these fests - featuring writers, books, poets and haikus - will help you get lost in one of our oldest arts.
