From http://stlstorytellingfestival.org/ :

The St. Louis Storytelling Festival is an event held in early May that has been offered for 30 years to people of all ages in the St. Louis Metropolitan area. Each year, more than 40 regional and 7 featured storytellers and their audiences gather during this four-day event for the telling of tales.

The Festival is coordinated by Continuing Education and the College of Fine Arts & Communication at the University of Missouri-St. Louis, in partnership with various organizations throughout the St. Louis area. This free cultural event is made possible through the gracious support and participation of its sponsors and is offered at a variety of locations, including: Jefferson National Expansion Memorial, The University of Missouri-St. Louis, Missouri Historical Society, Missouri Botanical Garden, St. Louis County Parks, St. Louis Public Library (selected branches), St. Louis County Library (selected branches), and St. Charles City Parks"Blanchette Park. All events are free and open to the public.

While the Festival is an annual event for all ages, primary attendance during the first three days of the Festival (Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday) is by area school children. Storytelling performances are scheduled from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. A special phone bank is scheduled in February for teachers wishing to make group reservations. For information about the phone bank, call (314) 516-6590. In recent years, Thursday evening activities for families and adults have been added to the Festival schedule.

Storytellers also visit outreach sites to bring the Festival to audiences who may not be able to attend at the scheduled locations.
