Summary
Find out the dates, history and traditions of World Storytelling Day.

World Storytelling Day is a celebration of the art of oral storytelling, observed since 2003.. It is celebrated every year on the March equinox, on (or near) March 20th.

On this day, oral storytellers around the world are busy inspiring audiences, and creating community, by telling classical tales, local stories, glorious, horrendous, happy, challenging, spooky, romantic and dramatic epic stories. Some wrapped in music, some staged and others intimate - but every story is told in a unique and compelling way, by a storyteller whose heart is full of great tales to bridge our divides and remind us what it is to be human.
