Would you like to find out about puppet performances and workshops happening in your area or abroad? You can join a local or national or international puppetry organization and get monthly updates.

"UNIMA" is the international puppetry organization, "Puppeteers of America" is the national one holding regular festivals around the country and producing a monthly journal. Puppeteers of America also has local guilds and you can find one in your area.

The Henson Foundation supports innovation in puppetry arts. The foundation gives out grants and has an email newsletter.

"Puppet Happenings" announcing NY and national puppet performances. If you are working on a research project or just looking for fun puppet websites we have them listed for you below. (These links will cause you to leave the Folkmanis website.)
