Tacoma! Boldly Went: Live Outdoor Adventure Storytelling Show
October 10 @ 6:45 pm - 9:00 pm
Come and Share YOUR Adventure Stories With Outdoorists of ALL Kinds at a Live Recording of the Boldly Went Podcast

You can’t shred gnar, bomb down trail, climb volcanoes, and run whitewater all the time. But at Boldly Went we know that when you’re not, you want to talk about your adventures with other people who get it – probably over beer. And every thru hiker, trail runner, mountain biker, climber, paddler, sailor, scuba diver, flyer, and Indiana Jones wannabe has at least one story that will inspire, inform, or at least entertain the rest of us, so we’re pulling together crowds of you and randomly selecting you to go on stage to give us your best.
How it works: Event format is casual and starts with a brief review of how to tell a good outdoor adventure story. Anyone interested in telling a story will be encouraged to complete the storyteller sign up sheet throughout the evening. Of those signed up, names are drawn at random. Selected individuals are given 10 minutes to tell their adventure story.
Storytellers are judged by select audience members using criteria described in detail on the Boldly Went website. A winner is announced at the end of the evening. Stories are recorded and may be shared later in the weekly podcast.
Everyone is welcome to attend and no one will be required or pressured to tell a story.
See the website for Boldly Went for more details about what to expect at the event and tips for preparing your 10 minute story if you think you have one to share.
If you choose to contribute an additional amount, proceeds go towards the local community storytelling program. Our fall 2019 programming will support Youth Experiential Training Institute!
