    Some of the nation’s most highly acclaimed storytellers will make their way to Athens the third week in October for the city’s annual celebration of storytelling, tall tales, and readings. Now in its tenth year, the Athens Storytelling Festival returns to the Limestone County Courthouse Square in downtown Athens October 22-27, 2018, and along with five award-winning performers, the event features an amateur night for locals to take the stage to unleash their own tall tales, lies and stories.
