What’s Happening

 Hampton, Virginia, a city rich in history, is also a city rich in stories. For almost 30 years Hampton has been a city uniquely focused on the importance of its neighborhoods, but the stories of those neighborhoods and their residents have yet to be celebrated. Storytelling, an art that has gained much recent popularity across the country, is a significant opportunity to showcase the individuals and stories that make Hampton special.

This festival is designed to introduce the art of storytelling at Hampton’s grassroot levels in order to make storytelling a viable part of the city’s culture. It will broaden understanding among residents and contribute to strengthening communications within and among neighborhoods.  Everybody's Got A Story 2023 Festival was funded in part through a grant from Virginia Humanities.
