StoryFest

StoryFest is an exciting endeavour launched by the Greenwood Centre for Living History in Hudson.

This annual Autumn celebration of writers, readers and storytellers builds upon the original Gigantes Series. This year we celebrate our eleventh anniversary.

A fun opportunity to "play with words" was developed to pay homage to Greenwood's founder and benefactor, Phoebe Nobbs Hyde, herself a passionate storyteller.

For general questions about tickets, payment options, locations, sponsorship, volunteering, etc., or if you would like to receive news/updates about StoryFest, please call the Greenwood Centre at 450-458-5396 or go to our contact page.
