The Story Crossroads Festival loves having high-quality storytelling available at affordable rates for individuals and families alike.  Children aged four and under and not students do not need a ticket to attend.  However, parents needs to be aware of their children’s listening sophistication.  Anyone attending is expected to have audience courtesy.

Each ticket is good for one person to attend a portion or the entire 2018 Story Crossroads Festival held on Wednesday, May 23.  Your printed e-receipt can count as admittance or you can verify your purchase with Will Call during the 2018 Story Crossroads Festival itself. Any questions or comments can be directed to storycrossroads@gmail.com or call Rachel Hedman at (801) 870-5799.

Frequently Asked Questions–Field Trips

What counts as a group to qualify for the reduced prices?

A group is of 10 people of more of any age.  Though, we do not charge for anyone aged 4 or under.

Are there any benefits for the attendees of the field trip besides the time at the Festival?

For any student tickets ordered by a school or group as a field trip, then the attending student will receive a special program that, when returned, can admit that student’s family into the Festival for free up to six people (including the student).  Any accompanying teachers or parents on these field trips also receive the student pricing.

How are these field trip requests reviewed?  When can I expect a response?

We fill the pavilions on a first-come first-serve basis and the time stamp on the online form submission or the date and time on the email will  determine the order to review the request.  Last year we filled to capacity for our field trips/large groups. A follow-up email will be sent to you from storycrossroads@gmail.com.

What are the benefits for the field trip attendees besides assigned time at the Festival?

For any student tickets ordered by a school or group as a field trip, then the attending student will receive a special program that, when returned, can admit that student’s family into the Festival for free up to six people (including the student).  Any accompanying teachers or parents on these field trips also receive the student pricing.

How many can you fit in a room/session?

We can fit about 200 people in each of the three pavilions though it is closer to 300 for pavilion number two.  For the evening concerts, we re at a different location, the South Jordan Community Center.  This ballroom can fit 350+ people.

What ages/grades are best for this Festival?

Anyone from Kindergarten to senior citizens will enjoy this Festival.  The material shared on stage is family-friendly.  We do have three pavilions running simultaneously with at least one pavilion dedicated to elementary and family audiences and one pavilion dedicated to middle school to adult audiences.  The third pavilion could be either for elementary or for middle school depending on the requests.

Even though it is $1.00 per person and the shuttling, we cannot afford to go.  What then?

There are one of two options then.  This is an annual festival and you could be ready for the 2019 Festival and work out the budget for the tickets and shuttling.  Otherwise, we can put you on a waiting list to be considered as one of our outreaches where a story artist comes to you.

Who is telling for the __________ (9:00am, 10:00am, 11:00am, etc.) session(s)?  Who do you recommend?

The complete schedule is found at www.storycrossroads.com.  You can click on the artist names and learn about their specialties and bios.  For example, we have several story artists that combine story with other arts such as music, dance, visual arts, theatre, and magic.  We also indicate any bilingual story artists and which language or languages to be featured.  All of the professional story artists are of high caliber and had to go through a rigorous review by our Story Training & Telling Committee with Story Crossroads.
