About the Event

The Smoky Mountain Storytellers Association is back again at Ijams in 2024. Join in the rich heritage of storytelling with them on January 7 as they offer "Winter Tales", where tellers share some of their personal favorite stories to warm the heart. You’ll find a multitude of telling styles and genres among their members: whether it’s traditional Appalachian tales, classical stories from foreign lands, contemporary fiction, or personal narratives, you’re never quite sure what you may find as the next story unfolds.

Doors open at 2 pm, stories begin at 2:30. Tickets for this event are $10 for adults and $5 for kids (ages 5-12).  This event is for all ages.

This event will happen in the large events room at the Ijams Visitor Center. Dogs are not allowed at this event. 

Featured tellers:

Sheri Liles: Her interest in Native American legends and Appalachian folk tales has shaped the stories she likes to tell. She’s even written a few of her own!

Fred Goddard: Fred?  Where to begin? A member of the First Families of Tennessee who grew up in New Jersey. The son of a farmer who once got assaulted by a chicken and the owner of a BA in History who had a career in Facilities management. Fred blends all of this in his tales of history, family, and fun.

Gale Park is a writer, artist, mystic, and storyteller. She is the author of a book called “Sacred Circles: Wheels of Power and Connection,” which helps people understand nature's spiritual aspects and get in synch with natural cycles. She is a Celtic culture and history student, so she loves to tell the old stories to crowds or just around a campfire with friends. She and her dogs live in a cabin in a sustainable community in the Clinch Mountains of East Tennessee. She spends weeks or months each year traveling in her van.
