Backyard Story Night

Event Details

The theme is, “That’s what she said.” This is open to interpretation for stories! This is also part of Wild Detective’s feminist month, celebrating Women Galore!


Started in Austin, TX, Backyard Story Night is the brainchild of John Brewster and Meg Mattingly. Now we’re experimenting with Dallas story telling events!

Backyard Story Night has been going strong for over 4 years! The goal is simple: gather friends – and friends of friends – in a backyard to share real, unrehearsed stories.

Our friends at The Wild Detectives are opening their backyard for our 5th gathering. Please note: Meg and John will not host this event, instead Corey Ann (a huge fan of theirs) is organizing it!

If you’re a storyteller or you love to enjoy a good tale, BSN is for you!

Mark May 20th in your calendar, RSVP here, and get ready for a fun night of storytelling. Please note: this event is ideal for 18+, as the stories have not been vetted or rehearsed.

**Drinks and food will be available for purchase from The Wild Detectives. Also, since parking is tight – we encourage walking, biking, Ubering, or carpooling!
