Storytelling Festival Comes To Mable House

Story teller Nov C 2013 045Step back in time on Saturday, Oct. 18 and enjoy an event filled day at the Mable House. The Friends of the Mable House present its Annual Storytelling Festival from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on the grounds of the historic Mable House.

Storytellers and musicians take turns on stage all day long. Stroll through the Historic House where a Southern Belle tells the history of the Mable family.

Learn some South Cobb history as you make crafts and learn skills from the 1800’s. Ever made your own butter, shucked corn, or decorated a pumpkin?

You’ll find lots of fun activities for all ages. Watch demonstrations of pottery making, blacksmithing, wood carving, weaving. Interact with the animals in the petting zoo, take a hay ride, and enjoy some BBQ or an old-time vegetable plate.

The South Cobb Lions annual Bar-B-Que will be held Oct. 18 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Oct. 19 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Plates are $7 each. Drinks and dessert are extra.

The Lions will also be offering hayrides for all, at no charge.

The Storytelling Festival is presented each year by the volunteers of the Friends of the Mable House and the South Cobb Arts Alliance with the support of the Cobb County Parks Recreation and Cultural Affairs Department.
