Off to an Amazing Start
2017 was the inaugural year for the Teton Storytelling and Arts Festival. We had several major, nationally known storytellers come to headline our festival. With our tellers, musicians and amazing regional artist, it was a wonderful start to our festival.
For our third year, we are finally going to be settling into our permanent home. We will have storytelling in our Historic Romance Theater, located on the corner of Main Street and Center Street in Rexburg, ID. We will be closing down Center Street for all our wonderful vendors and food trucks for you to enjoy on Friday the 9th and Saturday the 10th.
We will have opportunities for you to hear all your favorite tellers and some new ones all day Friday and Saturday from 10 am until 5 pm. Then in the evening, we will have some special VIP ticketed events to hear them for longer sets. Then Sunday we will continue our tradition of having the night of Sacred Stories and Music.
Our Wonderful Location
Rexburg is so close to amazing outdoor locations for a vacation. Only 55 miles from the Caribou-Targhee National Forrest and the beautiful scenery of Island Park, Idaho. The historic Yellowstone National Park West Entrance is only 130 miles from Rexburg.
Along with other amazing outdoor adventures close by like Jackson Hole, Wyoming, Grand Teton National Park, Yellowstone Bear World, and the Idaho Palisades. We encourage you to use our festival as a gateway to the national parks! Let us be the start of your amazing outdoor adventure.
Our Historic Buildings
In the heart of downtown Rexburg, we are fortunate enough to have two buildings that are over 100 years old and have survived the tests of times. Over the years the City of Rexburg had come into ownership of these wonderful buildings and have put time, care, and money into restoring them to the glorious state that they are in. The Historic Romance Theater is home to many performances throughout the year for the Rexburg Community, from Dance Recitals, Plays, Concerts, to Comedy Shows.
The Romance Theater and the Rexburg Tabernacle Civic Center are interwoven into the fabric of this town so it would only be fitting that the festival is hosted through the newly, restored, updated and air-conditioned Romance Theater.
