Big South Fork National River and Recreation Area will be hosting the Twenty-Second Annual Haunting inthe Hills Storytelling Festival on Saturday, September 20, 2014. 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. 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 e-mail us. All applications need to be received no later than Friday, September 5.
Volunteers are always welcome to demonstrate their craft and/or skills. Volunteers are also needed to assist with event activities. Please contact Volunteer Coordinator, Effie Houston, at (423) 569-9778 or e-mail us.

Did You Know?
The Big South Fork National River and Recreation Area protects only 14% of its watershed. Unfortunately it is the lower end of the watershed, so that everything which happens outside the park, impacts the parks water quality.
