sfusa_openingceremonies_400What a treat for those living in the Charleston, South Carolina area this weekend. It’s the Charleston Storytelling Festival. Held outdoors under the moss-draped oaks of Wragg Square in historic down Charleston, and also in the Second Presbyterian Church for the evening segments, this festival promises to be fun for all ages.


The Festival brings the best of local, regional and national storytelling talent as each presenter weaves tales of adventure and mystery. There will be performances by such well-known storytellers as Ed Stivender, Syd Lieberman, Barbara McBride-Smith and Donna Washington in addition to many others. Some have said that enjoying this event is much like listening to Garrison Keillor’s Prairie Home Companion radio show. The stories explore a whole range of human experience from humor to sorrow.


Come and join in the fun. Tickets for the entire two day event are just $30 for adults. A real bargain. Children twelve and under are free. In addition to multiple storytelling sessions there will also be musical guests and other fun activities held under the large tent in Wragg Square. Don’t miss the evening Family Stories and for those brave enough there is a session on Ghost Stories.
