World Storytelling Day logo
From the website of World Storytelling Day:
World Storytelling Day (March 20th) is a global celebration of the art of oral storytelling. It is celebrated every year on the spring equinox in the northern hemisphere, the first day of autumn equinox in the southern. On World Storytelling Day, as many people as possible tell and listen to stories in as many languages and at as many places as possible, during the same day and night. Participants tell each other about their events in order to share stories and inspiration, to learn from each other and create international contacts.

World Storytelling Day has its roots in a national day for storytelling in Sweden, circa 1991-2. In 2009, there were World Storytelling Day events in Europe, Asia, Africa, North America, South America and Australia.

Each year, many of the individual storytelling events that take place around the globe are linked by a common theme. The theme for 2017 is Transformation.
