The Flatwater Tales Storytelling Festival will feature three renowned storytellers on June 5. This year’s festival, led by volunteers from three Oak Ridge Rotary clubs, will be virtual because of COVID-19 concerns.
The featured storytellers will be Andy Offutt Irwin, Bil Lepp, and Kim Weitkamp. They are known to audiences nationwide for their wit, wisdom, and abilities to make audiences laugh, cry, and reminisce, a press release said.
Information on ticket purchases, prices, and additional workshops will be announced later. The evening show will be 8 p.m. Saturday, June 5.
“The Flatwater Tales Storytelling Festival, the first in the history of Oak Ridge, was an overwhelming success in 2018 and 2019 with over 1,000 people attending the performances,” the press release said. “Due to the interest and enthusiasm shown for the festival, the Rotary clubs are dedicated to making this year’s virtual festival another success. Some innovative and creative surprises are in store. More information will be released soon. Please put June 5, 2021 on your calendars!”
