It's Time for Tellabration! when thousands of people around the world gather in small towns and big cities to celebrate storytelling during the week before Thanksgiving. The international celebration of storytelling, known as Tellabration! serves to build grassroots community support for the age-old art of storytelling. Since its beginning in 1988, the annual observance has grown into one of the most impressive collective events in the history of the modern storytelling revival.
Citizens of Asheville and surrounding areas join the global TELLABRATION! Spirit for the twenty-third year, as Asheville Storytelling Circle hosts the regional event with a line-up of tellers drawn from the best North Carolina has to offer. In 2018 the perennially sold-out performance showcases the abundant talent of nationally lauded storyteller Elizabeth Ellis, and Asheville Storytelling Circle tellers: Charlie St. Clair, Catherine Yael Serota, Larry Pearlman, and Emcee Elena Miller.
Founded in 1995, Asheville Storytelling Circle is a nonprofit organization dedicated to excellence in the oral tradition by affirming various cultures through storytelling and nourishing the development of emerging and established artists.
