Big South Fork National River and Recreation Area will be hosting the Twenty-First Annual Haunting in the Hills Storytelling Festival on Saturday, September 21, 2013.  Traditional arts and crafts will be included as part of the festival throughout the day.  The park would like to take this opportunity to extend an invitation to all interested crafts persons, musicians, and volunteers to participate in this year's Storytelling Festival.

The National Park Service's policy regarding arts and craft sales does allow for the sales of demonstrated arts and crafts.  A one-time fee of $25.00 is required for craft vendors interested in selling crafts or having a booth during this one-day festival.  This fee can be applied towards your application to be a part of the Cultural Heritage Days at Blue Heron every Saturday in October.  All crafters will need to bring their own tent, table and chairs.

If you are interested in selling your craft items during this year's event, contact the Fee Program Manager, Letitia Neal, at (423) 569-2404, extension 267, or tish_neal@nps.gov.  All applications need to be received no later than Friday, September 6.

Volunteers are always welcome to demonstrate only and other volunteers are needed to assist with event activities.  Please contact Volunteer Coordinator, Effie Houston, at (423) 569-9778 or effie_houston@nps.gov.

For further information on this special event as well as other events, call the Bandy Creek Visitor Center at (423) 286-7275.
