See the complete list of featured guest tellers who delighted 100+ listerners each week.

Every Friday morning in the summer, there's excitement, anticipation and a buzz as people gather in the Enabling Garden part of riverside Park in Guelph.

Since then 
people have gathered in ever increasing numbers in the sublime setting of the Enabling Garden nestled along the Speed River to listen to stories. 

During the summer, on Friday mornings at 10:30, we have a one-hour program consisting of performances by local and invited tellers, some accompanied by music or puppets. Listeners bring their chairs or sit on rocks and benches.

Each session begins with an ackowledgment that this beautiful garden stands in ancient Indigenous land and that today Guelph and surround continues to be blessed with a strong community of First Nations, Metis and Inuit descendants who have much to teach us.

 Total attendance at Tea 'n' Tales 2018 was 1168  

From Brian Holstein, Organizer of Tea 'n' Tales 2018:
The 2018 season of Tea ‘n’ Tales is now history; a pleasant experience for us to remember throughout the winter months.
And it was a remarkably successful season: we had record crowds; a season when no one audience was less than 100; a season where we saw six incredible tellers made their debut – and a wonderful impression – at the Guelph Enabling Garden.
  May you visit that Garden again.
