Mammoth Museum at the Hayden Cabin Hosts the Fourth Annual Mammoth Storytelling Festival 

MAMMOTH LAKES – The Mammoth Museum at the Hayden Cabin is pleased to announce that its 4th Annual Mammoth Storytelling Festival will take place on Sunday, September 8, 2019 from noon until 4:00 p.m. Building on the success of previous festivals, this year’s line-up at the museum’s Temple of Folly tent will feature a mix of new and returning storytellers who will present fresh “Tales of the Sierra.”

Those attending this family-friendly event might hear a tale told by Father Crowley, a story about Andrea Mead Lawrence or a taste of cowboy poetry. This year's special musical guest is Chris Murphy, who will intermingle some anecdotes with his eclectic violin tunes.

Tickets are $10 for adults/$5 for children (under 18) and will be available at the gate. Complimentary sweet treats will be served during the afternoon. The Hayden Cabin is located at 5489 Sherwin Creek Road. Since parking is limited at the Museum, guests are encouraged to enter on foot from the northwest by crossing the bridge over Mammoth Creek from the Town Loop Multi-Use trail at Mammoth Creek Park East

Statement by Lesley Bruns, Festival Coordinator: “It’s been very rewarding for the Southern Mono Historical Society to grow the tradition of storytelling in our community. Our festival’s unique setting along the banks of Mammoth Creek provides a wonderful backdrop for an engaging afternoon of spoken word performance. The views of the lofty Sherwin Range are almost as impressive as the tales told by our storytellers.”
