Storytelling Circle will be open in the big tent Saturday and Sunday. There’s shade and chairs to sit a spell and enjoy a good old-fashioned story.
Storytelling is one of the oldest form of art — and one of the first to which we as children are exposed. Before the internet, television and radio, people told stories around campfires, on porches and anywhere where families or friends gathered. We still do — and we are celebrating storytelling in the Storytelling Circle Tent with true stories, tall tales and traditional stories!
