RACA-logo And thanks to the best library service anywhere, our own Sara Hightower Regional Library, sponsors of Big Fibbers for four years!



Another longtime sponsor of Big Fibbers and YoungTales is our area credit union. Thank you CVCU!


Armuchee Elementary was the very first school to sign on to the YoungTales program as part of the Big Fibbers Storytelling Festival. This year more Floyd County Schools students and teachers will be involved in the Festival than ever before.


West End Elementary has been a part of the YoungTales program from the beginning. Now many more Rome City Schools are participating as an integral part of the festival.


One of the great supporters of public education in our area is 100 Black Men of Northwest Georgia. Big Fibbers Storytelling Festival is thankful to 100 Black Men for thier support of our program.


The very first financial sponsor of the festival in 2015 was the Berry College Charter School of Education. In addition the college hosted the festival on its campus in 2015 and 2016. Berry College Elementary and Middle Schools have participated in the program all four years.


Big Fibbers Storytelling Festival is very thankful to Lisa Smith and the wonderful staff at the Greater Rome Convention and Visitors Bureau for their help in promoting and advertising the festival from its inception.


Rome’s unique and historic Chieftains Museum has had a close association with storytelling and with our guild for many years. We are especially thankful for their support in hosting our Meet the Tellers receptions. Thank you to Director Heather Shores and all the folks at Chieftains.



Thank you to Tammy Bryant and Deise Gomez all the folks at Rome-Floyd Parks & Recreation for their support of the Ridge & Valley Storytelling Guild and the festival.
