West Liberty Children's Festival

August 6, 2020

Much to our disappointment, Eulenspiegel Puppet Theatre’s Board of Directors has reluctantly decided that a typical Children’s Festival would not be safe during a pandemic. Eulenspiegel’s Board and staff are working on ideas for fun, safe activities to offer the community in lieu of the Festival. Keep current by checking the company’s website, Facebook page, and by scrolling to the bottom of this page to sign up for the email list.

In any case, we hope to host a virtual Puppet Slam, a live stream event in which we can watch short, sometimes experimental pieces by puppeteers all over the country!
