As Storytelling Live! sponsors, your donations promote the craft of storytelling and bring visitors to Jonesborough, Tennessee, the storytelling capital of the world! Support can be through a traditional sponsorship or a donation of goods and services. Sponsor benefits include recognition in the Storytelling Live! brochure, signage, announcements from the stage, website acknowledgment, media releases, and social media mentions.
The National Storytelling Festival needs the support of more than 500 volunteers to work with Festival staff and technicians to pull together an event that will make Jonesborough proud!
All National Storytelling Festival volunteers will make great memories and enjoy more than a few pleasant surprises. At the end of the day, volunteers will go home with a volunteer button and the undying gratitude of Festival attendees and organizers.
If interested, please e-mail our Festival Volunteer Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org
