The Telling Tales festival, annually held in Hamilton, is moving online this year.

The children's storytelling festival gathers Canadian authors, illustrators, musicians and storytellers together every year.

The event was cancelled due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

"Over the last few months we have been physically distancing, but that doesn't mean we can't be taken away on a journey to far off lands, share a laugh or discover new loves," said the press release.

The main event, featuring presentations, performances and workshops tailored to children of all ages, will take place online on Sept. 20, 2020.

This year's theme is stories that connect us.

The festival lineup includes Charlene Chua, Paul Covello, Andrea Curtis, Monique Gray Smith, Ruth Ohi, Kathy Kacer, Jonathan Auxier, Joanne Robertson and Suzanne Del Rizzo.
