Scenes from the 2023 National Storytelling Festival

On October 6­­–8, ISC was thrilled to host thousands of visitors for the 51st annual National Storytelling Festival, when Jonesborough came alive with stories and traditions from all over the world. With perfect company and *almost* perfect weather (just a little rain on Friday!), we couldn’t have asked for a better event. Thank you to everyone who attended—and for the people around the world who watched our livestream on Friday.

ISC is deeply grateful for our long-standing relationship with the talented photographers Jay Huron and Tom Raymond, who capture the joy and essence of the Festival every year. We’ve chosen a selection of some of our favorite images from this year. Please enjoy!
