Join us at ImaginOn on Saturday, February 3, 2024 from 10:00am-4:30pm for our first puppetry festival! PuppetPalooza 2024 will be an all-day, non-stop, FREE, family-friendly event celebrating the joy and art of puppetry, and all ages are welcome.

Shows will be running all day. Pop in for one or stay for them all, meet our giant roving puppets, explore our balcony exhibit of past puppets from Children's Theatre of Charlotte (CTC) shows, try your hand at puppet karaoke, make a paper bag puppet to take home with you, and stick around for our puppet parade at 4:30!
