Presenting the 17th Annual
Cave Run Storytelling Festival
September 25-26, 2015

Join America's most beloved storytellers in a beautiful mountain lakeside setting. Let these talented artists take you away to other times and places through the intrigue of storytelling, told in large tents on the shore of Cave Run Lake at the Twin Knobs Recreation Area in the Daniel Boone National Forest located eight miles west of Morehead, Kentucky.

The Kentucky Storytelling Association will sponsor a Story Slam on Saturday evening on the main festival stage beginning at 5:30. Cash prizes will be awarded for the best stories. Information on signing up will be announced during the festival. Contact Steve Lanham for more information.

"Dolores Hydock talks with her hands. And her elbows. And her shoulders. When she speaks, she is literally irrepressible." That's how one reviewer described Dolores' vivacious style that fills the stage with wit, energy, and a swirl of characters that populate her stories of family fireworks, food fads, true love, turnip greens, and other peculiarities of everyday life.
