Event Details

Enjoy the annual Charleston Tells Storytelling Festival under the oaks in historic downtown Charleston. The Festival brings together some of the best national and local storytellers with performances that reminisce about the carefree days of childhood, showcase humorous slice of life moments and transport audiences to significant times in history. Featured national tellers include Charlotte Blake Alston, Michael Reno Harrell, Bil Lepp and Corinne Stavish. Similar to listening to Garrison Keillor's Prairie Home Companion or being entertained by a great comedian, Charleston Tells celebrates 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 will be multiple concurrent performances, including a tent with activities and programs the whole family can enjoy.

The Festival, presented by Charleston County Public Library, blends the area's Southern charm and rich heritage with a deep-rooted respect for oral history as a revered art form. To learn more about the Festival, the tellers and to purchase tickets, visit the website.
