Held the Thursday, Friday and Saturday after Labor Day (September 5-7, 2019), the Timpanogos Storytelling Festival started out in 1990 as a backyard event in an Orem neighborhood. Now the largest storytelling festival in the west, it sets the standard for festivals across the nation. From that humble beginning, this event has grown steadily each year—including this, its 30th anniversary and 3rd year at Thanksgiving Point!
