Charleston Tells hosting inaugural Storytelling Festival

From folk tales to ghost tales, enjoy some of the best national and local storytellers as they inspire, amuse and delight audiences with stories that reminisce about childhood, tickle your funny bone and transport you to another place and time.

Similar to listening to Garrison Keillor’s Prairie Home Companion or being entertained by a great comedian, Charleston Tells offers audiences the opportunity to hear some great performances while celebrating the art and historical importance of storytelling. Programs are planned for both Friday and Saturday nights, including outdoor ghost stories Saturday night. During the day Saturday, there are multiple concurrent performances scheduled, including a tent with special programs specifically designed for the whole family.
