Almonte ON K0A 1A0

This weekend festival is unique on the international scene and takes over Almonte's Mill Street and the surrounding area in early August. After 11 years then a hiatus, Puppets Up! is back in 2022: August 12-14!  After a limited afternoon schedule on the Friday, the weekend has ten shows on four stages, street vendors, and a parade on both days, making 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. There are also special adult shows on Friday & Saturday night.
