The Twenty Fourth Annual West Liberty Children's Festival will take place Saturday, September 11, 2021, from 10:00 A.M. to 3:00 P.M. in downtown West Liberty on Third St, with a schedule chock full of performances, crafts, and activities! The day will include five puppet shows, all by excellent regional puppet troupes, as well as a street teeming with activities and one-on-one performances by visiting puppeteers, balloon twisters, face painters, and musicians. Ride a Tiny Train, paint a picture, make a puppet, eat delicious food, and MORE! Visit one of 15 bubble stations to blow magnificent bubbles! This year the Festival is part of a full weekend of fun, with Friday afternoon workshops and a Friday evening Puppet Slam for teens and adults. From 3:00-10:00 PM Saturday, Latinos Unidos will host an evening of live music and Mexican food.

In view of the rising covid numbers, masks will be the fashion statement at this year's festival! Kids are encouraged to decorate their own washable, reusable masks, then have the rest of their faces painted to match. They will be expected to wear their whimsical masks while watching shows in Ron-de-Voo Park for a fun and safe day!
