Footbridge Folktales will gather Edmontonians from all walks of life to share their stories of the Cloverdale Footbridge—biking to work every day, showing off downtown Edmonton to visitors, getting engaged (or married!), jamming with friends, or simply watching the river flow by.
At 2:00PM on Saturday, June 4th, we will invite storytellers to share their memories at a live picnic performance on the Footbridge. These stories will then be collected and published in a Footbridge Folktales anthology.
Whether you're an experienced storyteller, a keen listener with a love of social history, or just someone with a memory to share with your community, we welcome you to come down and celebrate the Cloverdale Footbridge and the river valley with us.
