Puppet Homecoming 2016

Friday, Sept. 9 through Sunday, Sept. 11, 2016.

“Be inspired”

Puppet Homecoming 2016 is done!  Great shows, informative workshops, exquisite gallery exhibit, fun store, and lots of friendly people sharing their love of puppetry.  Thank you to all the performers and workshop leaders, all the volunteers who helped make this happen, and thank you to everyone who attended and supported our efforts.

Talk has already started about the next Regional Festival in 2018.  If you liked this festival, get involved in your local guild and Puppeteers of America, and start planning for the National Festival in 2017.
