National Storytelling Festival in Jonesborough, Tennessee Oct. 1-3, 2010
The historic town of Jonesborough, Tennessee welcomes the National Storytelling Festival October 1-3, 2010.
The festival, now in it’s 38th year, is acclaimed as one of the Top 100 Events in North America.
The Festival began in 1973 when 60 people gathered around an old farm wagon in Courthouse Square to hear a few Appalachian tales. During the decades since, that tiny audience has grown to 10,000 listeners, and the hay wagon has been replaced by large, circus-like tents spread throughout the town where world-renowned tellers spin their tales in this storybook setting.
