This annual two-day international festival features amazing entertainment for all ages includes 12 puppet troupes & over 66 puppet shows, street entertainers, huge parade, crafts, food vendors & a puppet paraphernalia. Join the fun!

Puppets Up! was started in 2004 by a group of REALLY fun people in Almonte (inspired and led by Noreen Young) who wanted to entertain and inform people about the varied and vibrant art of puppetry, something common to virtually all cultures. The goal was to create a unique two day international Puppet Festival, situated in the main street environment of Almonte, Ontario, for persons of all ages. Now entering our 12th year…one might say that they have succeeded!!

Puppets Up! International Puppet Festival is a wonderful day or weekend out for anyone who loves the opportunity to take in original theatre, enjoy the delights offered by a beautiful and historic town like Almonte, and the pleasures of an outdoor festival experience.

Our 2016 performers are some of the best and most unique talents we have ever had at Puppets Up! Returning favourites, combined with fresh new talent and an amazing troupe from India mean that you will truly enjoy the offerings this year! Click HERE to see who is who!!
