Kathryn Tucker Windham Tale-Tellin’ Festival

What's happening?

Dovie Thomason, Wanda Johnson and Dolores Hydock headline Alabama’s 39th annual Kathryn Tucker Windham Tale-Tellin’ Festival as it returns to the Carneal Cultural Arts Center Oct. 27-28. Founded by the late Selma author Kathryn Tucker Windham, who believed that families should laugh together, the storytellers will capture your heart and create an unforgettable experience in literacy, culture, and the arts!
“2017 is the first year of Alabama’s Bicentennial Celebration and we are excited to be featuring storytellers that can celebrate her people, all of her people. We have a new friend coming to tell stories of the First Nations, a homegrown treasure to remind us of our roots, and an adopted Alabamian returning to be with us,” said Chairman Peggy Christian. “We are offering special rates to encourage family attendance, and these entertainers will have tales for every age!”
Sponsored by ArtsRevive, the fun begins at 6 p.m. with The Swappin’ Ground, where amateurs can tell their own stories. The main event starts at 7 both evenings. Selma’s Doris Butler Truax will emcee the event and tell a few tales herself, and light refreshments will be offered by Joyce’s Catering both evenings.
Tickets will be sold at the door, 3 Church St., and are $15 for adults, $10 for students with ID and free for children under six. The special family rate for two adults and two children under 18 is $30. Tale Tellin’ is funded in part by a generous grant for the Alabama State Council on the Arts.
