The Smoky Mountain Storytellers Association is teaming up with
Marble Springs Historic Site to host the
2nd Annual Storytelling Festival
on Saturday, April 9th starting at 1 pm EDT. 

This event sounds like great fun! We love storytelling events. Located at the Marble Springs Historic Site (that's the home of Gov. John Sevier), there will be free parking and festival seating (in other words - bring your chairs and blankets). The stories will be spread across three stages, and storytellers from the SMSA will be performing stories of humor, history, stories by and for children, tales of Appalachia and the Smoky Mountains, and Native American stories. At 6 pm, they'll be a gathering by the bonfire for slightly scary ghost stories, and at 7 pm they'll perform ghost stories for the brave.
The event ends at 8 pm. 

Admission cost is $5 for adults, $3 for children (under age 6 are Free). 

Discounts are available for groups of 10 or more, but they ask that you make your group reservations prior to April 4th. Contact information is
865-429-1783 or cuznjan (!at) juno (!dot) com.

Address is 1220 W Gov. John Sevier Hwy Knoxville, TN 37920
