The Shoals Storytelling Festival is located in Florence, AL in an area referred to as “the Shoals.” The Tennessee River winds through the heart of the four cities of Florence, Muscle Shoals, Sheffield, and Tuscumbia. Pre-festival events take place throughout the Quad Cities, but the festival takes place at the historic Shoals Theatre in downtown Florence. The theater is a cultural epicenter for the area and is situated among the best eats, shopping, and hospitality one could ask for. This Southeast Tourism Society Top Twenty event is a must see!

    I have tried to determine what the plans are for the festival in light of the impact of the Coronavirus. I have called the theater and was told that they did not know. We have enjoyed it in the past and have ordered and paid for 6 three day tickets for this year. As many events that involve crowds have announced cancellations, refunds etc, it would be helpful to know what the plans are for this event which is less than a month away. We are from out of town.
