Kidfest at the Seattle Children's Museum

This is a cross-posting from my Seattle storyteller gig website:

On Sunday, October 14 at 12 noon, I will present two storytimes geared for preschoolers and toddlers at Kidfest, the three day arts festival of the Seattle Children's Museum. Friday, October 12 focuses on the theatrical arts, Saturday, October 13 focuses on music, and Sunday, October 14 is storytelling day. The event is free to the general public costs $7.50, which is the general admission fee to the Children's Museum.

My plan is to present two different storytimes with a short break in-between so that caregivers and children could stay for one show or both, depending upon everyone's moods. Since my storytimes are right around the lunch hour, I recommend late morning snacks for everyone involved.

Here is the address for the Children's Museum:
305 Harrison St
Seattle, WA 98109
Telephone: (206) 441-1768

The Children's Museum is located in the Seattle Center, underneath the main food court and a short walk from the Seattle Children's Theatre and the Pacific Science Center. If you take the bus to Seattle Center, keep in mind that you're dealing with a Sunday schedule. If you come by car, plan to pay to park in the garage but congratulate yourself if you find free street parking.

I'm looking forward to finding out who else will be performing that day and meeting my audience. This is my first Seattle storytelling festival, and I'm delighted that it will be easily accessible to everyone-- or at least, those of you who will be in the Seattle area in mid-October. The rest of you may have to wait until I can make a storytelling video for you.
