Frequently Asked Questions–Virtual Field Trips
What ages/grades are best for this Festival?
Anyone from Kindergarten to senior citizens will enjoy this Festival. The materials shared are family-friendly. There will be a couple performances or academic sessions best for teens and adults though technically ages 10+ would still enjoy and understand them.
What do you mean by the price “per person/household”?

What is an extra bonus? Anyone who takes part in the $25/class rate has access as an individual and extends to the families of the students and teachers. We ask that anyone beyond that register separately.
What is the platform being used for your virtual field trip and for how long will it be available to view? We will use our YouTube Channel as an unlisted playlist with the link given only to registrants or main contact(s) for virtual field trips. Besides this link, the festival schedule webpage reminds you of the overall schedule as we near the festival dates. We will have a mix of pre-recorded, live-streamed events, and hybrid events where both in-person and recordings are available. If you are unable to watch during the scheduled times, you can return to the unlisted YouTube link and view from May 10-June 15, 2022.
What if we want to experience the in-person part of the Story Crossroads Festival? While we monitor the best safety practices, we will have either one, two, or three pavilions at the same time on Tuesday, May 10, 2022 starting at 9:30am at the Murray City Park, Murray, Utah. We are videotaping with multiple cameras no matter how many pavilions we use. This depends on field trip numbers by schools, homeschooling groups, and the general public and how comfortable people feel in gathering. If you are interested in seat(s) at this live part, then checkmark “live” in your ticketing/registration and we will be in touch on how to proceed. You can also email us at email@example.com.
When can you expect reminders and more details about the Festival? We will send out a confirmation email after registration. Please check your spam folder for this email or any other emails from us. As the festival nears, we can share more schedule details on April 1, 2022 as well as on May 1 and 9, 2022.
