Love telling tall tales and shaggy dog stories? Enter the Liars Contest at the third annual Susquehanna Folk Festival in July 2020!
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.
Note that contest details may change as plans firm up.
How to Apply:
Submit the application below by June 10, 2020. Include a link to a video representative of your work: this need not be the story you compete with. We will notify the ten finalists by June 15th, and at that point we'll ask you to send a photo of yourself.
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!
