11th Annual Stories in the Garden

Each autumn, Azalea Storytelling Festival and Hills & Dales Estate host Stories in the Garden, a free storytelling event beneath the canopy of the pecan grove. Sunday, October 9, will mark the event’s 11th year and will feature Southern Appalachian storyteller and songwriter Michael Reno Harrell, whose style has been described as being “like a breakfast of butter and molasses on a warm biscuit…southern, easy, and sweet.” An afternoon of family-friendly entertainment will begin at 2:00pm and last until 4:00pm, with light refreshments provided. Guests are encouraged to bring chairs or blankets for their comfort. In case of rain, the event will be postponed until Sunday, October 16 at 2pm. Enter at the Hills & Dales Drive gate.
