Paradise Valley Community College is proud to partner with The Arizona Coyotes for its 12th bi-annual free community literacy event. Families are invited to enjoy a full day of storytelling and cultural activities at PVCC’s Festival of Tales, a bi-annual event that brings reading to life. Children who participate receive free books and can participate in various activities, including demonstrations, vendors, arts and crafts, games, face painting, live music, food trucks and more!
“Festival of Tales is one of my favorite events here at PVCC,” said Meggin Kirk, program director, Education. “Not only does it help develop awareness and understanding for other cultures through storytelling, it often is the spark to ignite one's passion for learning.”
Since its inception in 2009, Festival of Tales has attracted more than 17,000 people from Maricopa County and more than 40,000 books have been given away to children and their families. In 2019, Festival of Tales was recognized with two distinguished awards from the Maricopa County Community College District, including the Diversity Advisory Council award and the Paul M. Pair Innovation of the Year award.
