Love telling tall tales and shaggy dog stories? Enter the Liars Contest at the third annual Susquehanna Folk Festival in July 2020! Applications will open later this spring.
The Liars Contest is a juried competition, emceed by the hilarious Andy Offutt Irwin. Storytellers must apply and submit a video representative of their work. Several contestants will be selected to participate in the competition at the festival. Each contestant will receive two complimentary Sunday festival tickets.
At the competition, each contestant will have 7 minutes onstage to tell a humorous, family-friendly story. A panel of three expert judges will award cash prizes to the top three liars.
Hang tight; applications will open soon!
Note that contest details may change as plans firm up.
Due to uncertainty about the coronavirus situation, we have temporarily suspended ticket sales for the festival. We do remain hopeful, and will make a decision in late April. Stay tuned, and keep making music!
