Moonshell Storytelling Festival

  • Print

Nebraska StoryArts celebrates the Moonshell Storytelling Festival on Sept. 13, 2014, at Mahoney State Park. Four outstanding national and regional storytellers will take part in a daylong celebration to preserve the art of storytelling. The festival will offer storytelling concerts geared toward families with special events for adults and will conclude with ghost stories in the evening. The Moonshell Storytelling Festival gets its name from the tiny round shells, called Moonshells, which were once found by Native Americans fishing in and crossing what we now call the Platte River. Because of the shells, the Native American nations called the river "The Moonshell." Nebraska StoryArts chose that as the name for this festival to honor the site and its heritage
