Well, hey there family!

We are awfully excited to announce that tickets go on sale today! As Y’all know, Appalachian HorrorFest is an evening of music and horror-themed storytelling.  We can’t think of a better way to kick off the Halloween Season.

We’ve created Appalachian HorrorFest to keep the heritage and legacy of storytelling alive in Appalachia.  Storytelling is an integral part of Appalachian culture.  One of the most incredible things about storytelling is how family-centered it is; those ties run deeper than blood-kin. Whether listening to scary stories while sitting around a bonfire as the chilly breeze of fall goads the dried leaves to skitter to and fro or sitting on the front porch as the lightning bugs light up the sky on a lazy summer night, that communal feeling is what draws us together.

The event takes place on Saturday, October 7, 2023, from 6-10 pm at Central Cinema in Knoxville, Tennessee.  Storytellers and musicians from around the region will come together to entertain you with extraordinary music and frightening storytelling performances.

Remember, seating is limited, so we encourage you to get your tickets early. Regrettably, the content of our evening of spinetingling storytelling may include explicit language and thematic elements not suitable for all audiences.   Viewer discretion is advised.  Only individuals 18 years of age and older may attend this event.  To purchase your tickets, click the “Purchase Tickets” button below.
