May 12, 2022 – Get ready for a fun time of outdoor entertainment on a beautiful spring afternoon at Mariposa County Art Park located at 4999 Highway 140 in Mariposa, CA. On Saturday May 21, 2022, from 3:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m., the Mariposa Story Slam returns. This year’s theme for the Story Slam! is “Boots”. From 3:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m., Gail Dreifus and her friend will provide musical entertainment, followed by tales presented by storytellers from 4:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. on the theme “Boots”.

If you have a true and compelling story you’re ready to share, call (209) 347-0761 or visit https://www.facebook.com/storytellingmariposa to register or for more information. You can sign up for Pony Expresso, High Country, or Casto Oaks Wine and Fine Art. Storytellers can also sign up to tell a story just before the Story Slam at 3:30 p.m. Saturday May 21 at the Mariposa County Art Park. People delivering a story must be at least 10 years old. The story must be rated “G”; it cannot be read but must either be memorized or presented extemporaneously, and no props or costumes may be used.

So grab a blanket or lawn chair and get ready to sit on the grassy slopes of Mariposa Art Park for an afternoon of listening pleasure. Three esteemed judges will evaluate the stories for content and presentation; they will award cash prizes to the top 3 tellers.

This is a free event, but donations will be gladly accepted to help defray expenses.
