Each summer on Saturday morning for the past 60 years, New Yorkers of all ages have listened to Andersen tales and other stories, folktales, and fairytales from around the world told by a group of brilliant storytellers at the Hans Christian Andersen Statue in Central Park. This landmark New York event continues this summer, with storytelling happening every Saturday from June through September.

Connie Reagan Blake, Len Cabral, Laura Simms, and Lisa Marie Nedergaard will lead a special Independence Day Celebration and share Appalachian, Caribbean, and Danish stories with accompaniment from cellist Lynn Andersen.

Storytelling is held rain or shine. The stories are appropriate for children six years old and up. Parents or guardians are asked to sit with their children.

This free program is funded by the Hans Christian Andersen Story Telling Center, Inc.
