The festival showcases the art of Southern storytelling with a particular focus on Appalachian stories, both traditional and contemporary. The GMSF offers storytelling and musical performances, children's events, and workshops so that community members, visitors from afar, and students of all ages will not only learn about the tradition and history of our region through storytelling, but also have the opportunity to become part of its preservation.

We will also have terrific stories from panels of local tellers, stories just for children, a beautiful quilt display, a marketplace, and information tables from many area organizations and programs.
