About the Puppet Palooza Series
As the summer season approaches, the Somerville Arts Council continues with one of its popular city-wide event series: Puppet Palooza! Events like this, along with PorchFEST and Dancing in the Streets, allow the community to participate, interact, and engage in non-traditional ways in untraditional venues while cultivating the idea of Somerville as a cultural arts incubator without walls.
Puppet Palooza brings the art of puppetry to East Somerville in unexpected places. Join us in East Somerville for a five-part puppetry extravaganza.
This spring, we’ll hit the streets, courtyards and parks, showcasing local, national, and international performing companies. Great for kids and adults and 100% free.
