On April 30, 2023, Bob Baker Marionette Theater's FREE annual festival returns! Bob Baker Day celebrates the legacy of our founder, Bob Baker, with puppets, fun, and joy for our whole community!

This year's Bob Baker Day Grand Marshal is Guillermo del Toro's Pinocchio and voice actor Gregory Mann! In partnership with Netflix, the stars of the Oscar-nominated film will commence Bob Baker Day’s opening ceremonies and several appearances throughout the day including an exhibit tent, filled with artifacts from his 2022 film! Animator Nicholas D’Agostino will also be joining the festival, giving demonstrations on the amazing puppets used in the film throughout the day.

Special guests include Bozo the Clown, Jozo Bozo & NüNü, King Kukulele, Buster Balloon, Randal Metz, Joe Selph & Rene's Marionettes, Pacific Opera Project, The Hollow Trees, and more! Find out more about our line up, vendor and food market, and activities here.
