Storytellers are invited to share their stories at the Renton Multicultural Festival at the Piazza Park in downtown Renton on Saturday, September 15, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Inspired by national storytelling events like The Moth, the goal is to honor and celebrate diversity and the commonality of human experience through the art of storytelling. The festival will include a storytelling stage where anyone from the public can sign-up to tell a story. Stories will be video-taped and curated by the Renton History Museum. Everyone has a story to tell and no advance registration is necessary. Interested participants can enter their names at the event and will be selected randomly to tell their stories. The stories should be based on one of the following themes and limited to 4 minutes.

  • Journey Stories
  • Back in my day...
  • How I got here...
  • What is your favorite family tradition?
