Storytelling Festival Special Event Rally
45th Year of Festival – 13th Year for WBCCI
Jonesborough, Tennessee

In an age of fast technology, it seems unlikely that thousands of people can spend a weekend mesmerized by the voices of storytellers, yet at this event, that’s exactly what happens. The National Storytelling Festival began in 1973 when 60 gathered to hear a few Appalachian tales told from the back of a hay wagon. Those 60 have grown to 11,000 and the hay wagon has been replaced with large circus tents. The East Tennessee Unit provides you a unique opportunity to attend this popular festival in your Airstream. $115.00 rally fee includes 5 nights parking w/full hook-ups. Each person is responsible for purchasing his or her tickets to the Storytelling Festival. Early parking begins Sunday, October 1 @ $23.00 a night.
