Tall tales will be told in Port St. Joe.

The third annual Shells and Tales storytelling event will be held over the next two weekends, bringing locals and professionals together for the best stories this side of the Gulf of Mexico.

The Liar’s Challenge will mark the start of the festivities from 6 p.m. until 8 p.m. ET on Friday, Feb. 21 at the Thirsty Goat inside the Port Inn.

This year’s theme will be “Fish Tale” and participants should bring their best fish stories to share with the crowd. While they don’t have to be true, the tales should be tall.

Cash prizes will be given away to first through third place winners and the event is open to the public.

The following weekend at 6 p.m. ET on Feb. 28, the wine and cheese and Grownup Stories event will be held at Gulf Coast State College Gulf/Franklin campus and will showcase professional storytellers Bob Patterson from St. Augustine, Pat Nease from Panama City and Robyn Rennick from Tallahassee in a fun, relaxed environment.

Bob Patterson is a professional singer, songwriter and storyteller with over 50 years of experience performing at clubs, festivals, and on nationally syndicated radio and TV programs. It will be Patterson’s first time showcasing at the Shells and Tales event.
