Puppets in the Park at Bishop Lucey Park

Come along during to a feast of workshops, puppet shows and activities in Bishop Lucey Park throughout the weekend.

Make your own finger puppet, create its story and film it in our puppet booth – or join in and help us build some giant puppets for the Puppet Picnic Parade!

Watch internationally renowned puppeteers practice their craft with marionettes and hand-puppets – on the ground, on the table, in the booth, along the sidewalk!

Discover the world of micropuppetry with the Dowtcha Youth Ensemble’s series of short, original vignettes.

Also be sure to keep an eye out for some friendly giants on promenade – and witness the traditional, all-singing, all-dancing courtship of Dowtcha’s wacky Love Birds!
