A beloved Festival tradition, two nights of fright await you in these open-air ghost story concerts featuring a different collection of haunting tales each night. Guest tellers and Festival veterans Charlotte Blake Alston and Dan Keding join other featured tellers on the Ghost Story Stage on both Friday and Saturday.

Charlotte Blake Alston has performed in venues throughout North America and abroad, including the Kennedy Center, the Smithsonian Institution, and the Women of the World Festival in South Africa. She is a recipient of the NSN ORACLE Circle of Excellence award, the Pew Fellowship in the Arts, and the Zora Neale Hurston award.

Dan Keding is well-known for his telling of personal narratives, ghost stories, world folktales, and superbly crafted original pieces. He has performed across the world, including festivals in England, Ireland and Canada. Keding’s numerous awards include the NSN ORACLE Storytelling Circle of Excellence Award.

Stories at 8 p.m. each night in any kind of weather. It’s ground seating only, so remember to bring your blankets. Ghost story concerts are not recommended for children under 6.  Tickets available at Mary B. Martin Storytelling Hall, at registration, and at the gate.
