Athens Storytelling Festival

October 21, 2022 @ 9:00 AM - 9:20 PM

Athens storytelling festival

Athens Storytelling Festival is held annually in the last weekend of October amid the shops and eateries of historic Athens, AL.

Life, Legends, and Lies — from ghost stories to tear-jerkers to knee-slappers, you’ll get wrapped up in the story and magic of the very talented storytellers as they “spin the yarn” at this annual festival. Set on the historic and beautiful downtown square of Athens, festival attendees can enjoy the inviting shops and restaurants during the intermissions between storytellers. Food vendors will be on hand offering good old-fashioned festival fare that will help you drift further into nostalgia.

The Athens Storytelling Festival is a family-friendly festival offering a diverse array of Storytellers to entertain you, help you glimpse into the bygone days, or open the door of imagination.

When: October 21 & 22 | 9 AM- 9:20 PM
