Highlights from the 2018 New York State Fair Storytelling Festival

New York State Fair

This year, at the Great New York State Fair, everyday New Yorkers told their own compelling true tales. We're sharing highlights of those stories this weekend as part of "Public Radio Presents."

In The Great New York State Story Slam, 10 people were chosen at random from audience members -- they had five minutes to tell a true story from their lives focused on the theme: Life in New York State. Judges chose three winners.

An in "Unravel" true tales were told by master storytellers. Comedy improvisation troupes then performed using inspiration from their stories.

Tune in this Sunday, October 14 at 7 p.m. for more on WRVO.
