Now in its 19th year, Ocoee Story Fest is one of the longest-running storytelling festivals in the state, outside the National Festival held each October in Jonesborough, and brings a nationally recognized storyteller to the area.
Ford has appeared on stages and in festivals both in the United States and abroad. Her gentle humor, quick wit and colorful stories will make this festival an event not to be missed.
In the days leading up to the festival, Ford will be appearing in six local schools thanks to the support of the Arts in Education committee of the Allied Arts Council of the Cleveland Bradley Chamber of Commerce.
