The Oklahoma City Storytelling Festival, formerly known as "Winter Tales" is an annual storytelling festival held in Oklahoma City for the last thirty-three (33) years. It is sponsored by the Oklahoma City Arts Council and each year four nationally ranked storytellers are brought to Oklahoma City to expose audiences to the art of storytelling. However, Oklahoma storytellers are also highlighted in their own storytelling concert and each year four Oklahoma storytellers are selected to showcase Oklahoma storytelling talent. This is the third time that Hardman has been chosen to perform as part of the "Oklahoma Olio" showcase.

Hardman has been active in Oklahoma storytelling for the past eight years. He is currently serving as President of Territory Tellers, the statewide storytelling organization. He has been a storyteller/presenter at the Spirit of Oklahoma Storytelling Festival for the last seven years and last June was selected as one of six storytellers to perform with nationally known storyteller, Tim Tingle. He has also performed twice at the Texas Storytelling Festival with nationally known storytellers Lynn Ford and DeCee Cornish. In addition, he has presented workshops on storytelling at professional conferences in Oklahoma, Texas, Kansas, Arizona, Utah, Nevada, Oregon and New Hampshire.
