This event which has attracted annual crowds of more than 3,000 from all around Central New York promises to be even bigger and better this year! Designed for the whole family, it features free performances, including shows by out of town performers, local artist, storytelling, music, dance and more.

Art projects and workshops for the entire family will run throughout the day.

Bring your own chair for The Giant Puppet Circus, our featured presentation, which will include 50 local children who attended the annual Summer Circus Camp. The circus will open with a puppet parade at 1:45 p.m.

Open Hand Theater is excited to bring the festival to the North Side once again, with the support of Northside UP.

Open Hand Theater, founded in 1980, operates innovative arts-in-education programs throughout Central and Western New York and curates the International Mask and Puppet Museum. The museum is devoted to the celebration and exploration of the diversity of cultural traditions through mask and puppet traditions. The museum's permanent collections include masks, marionettes and shadow puppets, artifacts and ritual intstruments.
