Schoharie Crossing is excited to bring back the annual Not Just for Kids Storytelling series on Sunday evenings in August, starting at 6:00pm. This storytelling performance each week is open to the public of all ages. Local tellers, with well-crafted tales will perform during the 29th year of this program at Schoharie Crossing.
The lineup for the rest of the series is: August 8th, Joe Doolittle; August 15th, Margaret French. August 22nd, Jeannine Laverty. August 29th, Sandy Schuman.
Not Just for Kids Storytelling will be held outside, under a tent near the Visitor Center, 129 Schoharie Street, Fort Hunter, NY 12069. We encourage you to bring a lawn chair or picnic blanket to sit on. The program begins at 6pm and is free to the public due to the generous support of a Saratoga Arts’ Community Arts Grant that has been made possible with funding by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature. Karen’s Produce and Ice Cream is also another wonderful supporter of these programs.
