Become a part of the largest and oldest arts group in Cobb County. Show your support for art in the community and enjoy many additional benefits of membership.
How did people live, work and play before electricity? What did children do before television and computers? What did people eat back in the 1800’s? Come to the Mable House and find out!
Step back in time every October and enjoy an event-filled day 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 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.
