West Windsor Arts to Host Storytelling Event and Chocolate Tasting

(PRINCETON JUNCTION, NJ) -- Everyone loves a great story. And everyone has a story to tell. When true stories are told live, with heart but without notes, by everyday folks, the power of storytelling comes to life. West Windsor Arts is inviting members of the community to share their true stories of how sweet life can be at a special event, led by storyteller Maureen Connolly and hosted at the arts center on Friday, January 27, 2023. 

The event takes place from 7:30pm to 9:30pm and is also a fundraiser for West Windsor Arts. A total of eight, five-minute stories will be told that evening, following a presentation and chocolate tasting by Kelly McCarron-Schwing of Cocoa Beau, featuring David Bradley Chocolates.

There is no pressure for anyone who attends to share a story. “This is a fun event, planned just ahead of Valentine’s Day, that promises to warm the heart,” says Maureen Connolly, a West Windsor Arts board member and professor at TCNJ who will be leading the event. “You’ll be entertained, hear stories from real life, enjoy delicious chocolate, and support the arts council.”

The first four people to register as storytellers will be guaranteed a spot in the “spotlight,” which will allow them to save seats for friends and family. After that, names are selected randomly from a bucket at the event. 

“We are looking for your best stories about a time you experienced sweetness, be it emotional, taste or any other form you can think of. It could be your couple origin story, a tale of two desserts — anything you think might be sweet, even if it turned out to be salty!”

Every storyteller will get a prize. All participants will have a chance to purchase chocolates at the event, with 10% of the sales benefiting the arts center.

“West Windsor Arts is one of those special places in our community that draws people together,” adds Connolly. “That’s what this is all about. Community.”

Registration is $25 in advance and $30 at the door. Seating is limited. For more information, click here. 

The West Windsor Arts Council (952 Alexander Road, Princeton Junction) offers art and cultural events, workshops, and classes for all ages and in all disciplines at the West Windsor Arts Center and in the community.
