  Bynum Front Porch Storytelling
State: North Carolina

On second Saturdays, treat yourself to an evening of storytelling at the historic Bynum General Store in Piedmont North Carolina.

North Carolina’s best storytellers and emerging talent are telling. True life stories, folk tales, traditional stories from many lands … LIES! With a “fresh face” at every show. Be ready to laugh, cry and laugh some more. These are "talented raconteurs!" And the show is hosted by a bona fide, professional comedian so laughs are many!

There are refreshments and time for visiting too! Moon pies, RC Colas, hoop cheese - our nod to the past! Many a story has been told at the Bynum General Store .. you'll hear us say often, "...if these walls could talk!"

The event is family friendly – “the stories most enjoyed by those 8 and above.” We pass the hat and 20% of the proceeds go to Bynum Front Porch – a non-profit, benevolent organization in the community.

Bynum is a former cotton mill town turned artist community on the banks of the Haw River, not far from Pittsboro, NC. Come early and take a walk on the Haw River in the lovely little village Bynum!

6:30pm - 9:00pm
Admission Free - donations accepted
