Community Day

Puppeteers of America (PofA) is a national non-profit organization founded in 1937 to provide information, encourage performances, and build a community of people who celebrate puppet theatre. We support puppeteers and advance the art of puppetry by presenting knowledge, providing inspiration and promoting preservation. Knowledge. Inspiration. Preservation.

The specific purpose of Puppeteers of America, Inc. is educational. To instruct the public and raise awareness about puppetry as a means of communication, an extension of human expression, and as a performing art. This includes teaching the community about the importance of puppetry as well as enhancing the proficiency of the Art of Puppetry, both professional and amateur, by publications, educational materials, workshops, forums, conventions, festivals, panels, lectures, advisory services, and all other means and methods.

Traditionally, PofA has welcomed the public for a specific community day event. A time to explore and engage with the world of puppetry. The 2023 Festival will honor this practice and will expand our outreach to the greater Maryland and DC area. We will be working with local partners to bring communities each day to experience a mini-festival filled with skill-building workshops, performances, exhibits and more! Puppet curious? Members of the public are also welcome to purchase full registration, day passes and/or show tickets when they become available later in 2023.
