The 4th Annual Flatwater Tales Storytelling Festival returns on Saturday, June 5, with a thrilling day of live storytelling.

Andy Offutt Irwin, Bil Lepp, and Kimberly Weitkamp are internationally-recognized tellers who will captivate you during three performances at the Historic Grove Theater in Oak Ridge, Tennessee. They will share different stories at each show. The performances are from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. (Family Show), from 2 to 5 p.m., and 7 to 10 p.m.

Our tellers have achieved international acclaim and appear regularly at festivals, including the National Storytelling Festival in Jonesborough, Tennessee. Their mesmerizing performances bring people together to share the magic of this time-honored, increasingly popular art form.

The Flatwater Tales, held annually the first weekend in June, is an all-volunteer effort led by the three Oak Ridge Rotary Clubs to entertain, bring people together, and to celebrate and support our community.

On Saturday, June 5, at 10 a.m., we kick off our day of storytelling with a family event. This show is not recommended for children younger than 5.

Flatwater Tales continues with two different shows, from 2 to 5 p.m. and 7 to 10 p.m. Each show features different stories. For a limited time, we offer Early Bird ticket prices for both the afternoon and evening shows.

This year we are offering an All-Day Festival ticket for all three shows. All tickets are open seating. The afternoon and evening shows are recommended for children 10 and older. For group sales contact us at flatwatertales@gmail.com.
