Puppetry Arts Festival of Brooklyn

From 11 AM to 3 PM on Saturday, June 28, the Old Stone House, in the park at 344 5th Avenue (at 4th Street) in Park Slope/Gowanus, will host The Annual Puppetry Arts Festival of Brooklyn, featuring puppet performances by troupes from around New York City and beyond.

This all-ages event will be held rain or shine. Admission is free, but some activities are fee-based.

Wheelchair accessible.

The event is a fundraiser for creative arts programming for low-income and at-risk children in New York City.

Performances take place all day on the main stage.  See hand puppets, body puppets, rod puppets, and marionettes, as well as puppet and mask-making demonstrations.

There will also be face painting, popcorn, $2.00 games, snacks, a $4 bounce house, and T-Shirt decorating.

Special guest Tuffy Tiger, from the "That's What Tuffy Tigers Do" series, will be on hand, as well as the Dinosaur Troubadour from Field Station Dinosaurs, in an interactive Paleozoic adventure. Also featured is an incredibly life-like roaring, breathing juvenile T-Rex.

Other special guests include C3P-O of Star Wars, Pocoyo, and more.

The first 200 kids will get Puppetry Arts gift bags.
