International Storytelling Festival

Just returned from 5 days in Jonesborough TN attending the International Storytelling Festival and ralllying at the Appalachian Fairgrounds with the East Tennessee Unit (and the wonderful hosts Sandy and Harold).
If you've ever thought of going, GO !!!
The Festival was a great experience. Everyone in the Rally was great and we made some new friends. That's what rallying is all about.

Cool. I have always wanted to attend a story telling festival but never have. I enjoyed a storyteller's book about my town and ever since have had a keen desire to attend one some time. I will certainly try to take your advice some time in the future. Any particular highlights for you that you care to share?

I have to agree. We also were there, with our 17-year-old son and our daughter drove over from Nashville to meet us there. It was our third year to attend the rally and the Storytelling Festival. The festival was great & so were Harold & Sandy & all the Airstreamers.

A big A+ in my book, and that's a TRUE story!!....

Home Away From Home

We love Storytelling!

We lived in Jonesborough about fifteen years ago and kept our home, Sisters Row. It's right on Main Street.
Sisters' Row in Jonesborough, Tennessee

We loved going to the festival, we literally would walk out the door and there it was! We always met the nicest people attending the event. We hope you had a chance to see Kathryn Windham. Kathryn Windham • Kathryn Windham • Featured Tellers • Festival • International Storytelling Center Her enthusiasm is inspiring. She would open her shows by singing, "This Little Light Of Mine". It was so infectious - soon the entire audience was singing along with her.

Jonesborough is such a great town! We loved living there. The residents are lovely, as are its charming and historic homes. It really does feel like you're in a small town. Its annual Fourth of July parade is as American as apple pie, with babies being pulled along the route in little red Radio Flyer wagons and neighbors sitting on their porches waving to one another.

We hope you enjoyed your time in our adopted town.
