Storytelling Festival & Liars Competition

Each October, the hills and hollers around the Hagood Mill Historic Site come alive with storytellers sharing the weird and wonderful, mountain funnies, memories of yesteryear, and tales of mystical places in Appalachia.

In addition to our fabulous storytellers, eight talented wordsmiths will have eight minutes each to tell their best, their boldest, their funniest and most outlandish lies to be crowned with the title of “Biggest Liar in South Carolina.”

Cash prizes will be awarded to first, second, and third place contestants.  If you have tall tales, fish stories, alternative facts, or bald-faced bits of balderdash and aren’t afraid to share them, make sure you register for one of the limited spaces!

Finally, we have a writing contest in our local schools.  Our winner in each age group, will be here to share their story.  Perhaps you’ll see a future storyteller here.
