Puppets Up! International Puppet Festival - Almonte ON

Selected Event

Planning Meeting for "Pop Up Puppets Up 2022"

Thu, 22 Apr 2021 - Thu, 22 Apr

Time: 7:00PM - 21:00

Organizers are contemplating a Puppets Up! festival in 2022, but wonder if they could get enough people to help organize it; to take the lead organizational roles such as fundraiser, grant writer, marketing and communication director, street entertainment, volunteer coordinator, location director, technical director, logistics, secretary, treasurer ... there would be SO much to do!  Join us tonight if you would be willing to take (or share) a lead role in a one-time pop-up festival to be held on a weekend in July of 2022. It will be a lot of work. Get free ticket to Zoom meeting at eventbrite.

Almonte ON K0A 1A0

This two-day festival is unique on the international scene and takes over Almonte's Mill Street and the surrounding area every August. Ten shows on five stages, street vendors, family friendly activities and a parade on both days add up to make one exceptional weekend. Operated by volunteers, the festival has lots of fun jobs to choose from: ticket sellers, theatre hosts, parade marshals, stagehands, kids’ craft tent helpers, and more. Volunteers get festival T-shirts and festival passes.

The 2015 festival will take place August 7th - 9th. This year 12 troupes include Iceland's Worlds of Puppets with "Peter and the Wolf", Rhode Island's Big Nazo Lab's "Intergalactic Creature Band", and "Pigs in a Canoe" (in English and French) by WP Puppet Theatre from Calgary Alberta, plus nine others. Shows geared towards young and older kids take place in tents and theatres, while buskers and parades keep the street hopping. There’s also a kids’ craft tent, puppet marketplace, great food and lots more!
