Story Slam -- "How Could i resist?" @ Bearsville Theater, March 22, 2018, 7pm

Our infamous Story Slam will once again open the Festival, on Thursday night, March 22, 2018.

This event is always the talk of the weekend. It’s a classic Woodstock evening, celebrating the joy of words.

The 2018 Story Slam theme is inspired by the power of resistance – in all its forms – in our lives. We want to hear and share your stories.

To that end, each story must contain the phrase,  “How Could I Resist?”

Each story must be under 4 minutes— and there will be a timer and a gong. This makes for a rollicking good time. You’ll be hard-pressed to find a more supportive and interactive audience than this one.

Check out some videos of last year’s event.

The winner goes home with a Woodstock Bookfest goody bag, overflowing with prizes from our sponsors.

Host for the event is Ida Hakkila, whose voice you’ll recognize from her weekly Saturday night gig as host of WDST’s “Heavy Light Show.”
