|Festival Dates||July 30 - August 27, 2010|
In summer of year 2000 the organizers took a walk by la Plaza de San Pedro and noticed many people enjoying the shore and strolling idling along. That is when the idea was conceived—these idle indivdiuals and groups would probably enjoy something happening here in this beautiful place. That is when the idea of Story Summer - Canarias Oral Scenic Narrative Festival came about. The idea was to create an encounter between actors and the public. The event has been tremendously supported by the mass media and attendees from the beginning. Since the beginning the organizers have taken advice from the audience by changing the location and adding another day to the program and continually improving the quality of the event. To the delight of all the participants, spontaneous individuals jump in and added to the show. In 2007 the Summer of Story will celebrate its 7th year.
