The Northeast and Mid-Atlantic Regions of the Puppeteers of America are pleased to present Puppet Homecoming 2014, a gathering of puppeteers in picturesque Rhinebeck, NY, Sept. 5-7, 2014. Events will include performances, workshops, exhibits, puppetry swap-meet, and more. There will be a late-night puppet Salon for short works, as well as a puppet Slam. The Homecoming is intended to be an affordable weekend of sharing among puppeteers and puppetry enthusiasts, run entirely by volunteers to keep costs low.

The location will be beautiful camp Ramapo for Children, the site of our Puppet Homecoming 2012 which was a great success, with 111 attendees. The site provides housing, performance and workshop space, meals, and five campsites. This will be a family-friendly event, and children are welcome.
The festival co-directors are Artie Poore and Sharon Peck. Several Guilds in the region are taking on a different aspect of the planning and operation. You too can be a part and volunteer. For details and updates, keep checking this website or our Facebook page.
