Puppets in the Park

One of the most popular family events in Fayetteville, Puppets in the Park, will take place Saturday, Oct. 14, at Wilson Park.

The 10th annual Puppets in the Park, a creative and fun family experience for all, is a free festival celebrating the art of puppetry and performance arts.

The event is hosted by The Art Experience, a local non-profit that provides creative and therapeutic experiences in group/class settings, open studio and community building events for those who otherwise could not afford it.

Puppets in the Park lasts from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. There will be puppetry and storytelling workshops for children, puppet shows for all ages, juggling, unicycling, crafts, games, music, food and the crowd-favorite “Giant Puppet Pageant.”

As a new addition to the festivities, this year will also include an adults-only Puppet Slam on Friday, October 13 at Path Outfitters on the Fayetteville Square. The slam will be composed of contemporary short-form puppet theater with pieces being performed by puppeteers of all skill levels.
