The Smoky Mountains Storytelling Festival in Pigeon Forge is an annual event. The event will be held on February 3-5 2011. The Pigeon Forge storytelling festival allows storytellers to showcase their unique abilities during workshops and on stage throughout the few days of fun and storytelling. The list of performing changes year after year as they travel from as far as from West Virginia, California, New York and all over the United States of America. Folklore, wild west, and ghost stories are all fair game for the festival and visitors are sure to be enchanted.
Waddie Mitchell, from Nevada has performed; Bill Lep, who has been a five time winner of the West Virginia liars contest, and more have performed in the Pigeon Forge storytelling festival in years past. Some participants are from different countries and offer a unqiue perspective and learning environment for visitors to learn about other cultures. There are also team storytellers. In the past Mitch and Martha Weiss, who are husband and wife and have won awards together for their accomplishments in the storytelling world have performed at the storytelling festival. What an honor it is for the city of Pigeon Forge to host such a great festival every year!
