Description

The "Pacific Southwest Puppet Fest 2018" will be held March 1-4, in Santa Barbara, California! It will run concurrently with the Santa Barbara International PuppetPalooza festival, with exciting events spanning all 4 days!

We're delighted to welcome the members of the Puppeteers of America to a PSW Region Reception on Thursday afternoon. We'll also be hosting workshops on Friday and Saturday, and the LA Guild of Puppetry will hold a puppet slam. The Santa Barbara International PuppetPalooza will present a variety of puppet shows, and other events, beginning Thursday evening, and culminating in a puppet parade on Sunday afternoon.

The PSW Region is looking forward to experiencing the beauty of Santa Barbara with our fellow puppeteers, with accommodations near the beach, and close to the rich history of colorful downtown.

If you're not already a Puppeteers of America member, choose the non-member pricing and you'll automatically receive a 1-year membership to the Puppeteers of America! Benefits of membership can be found at www.puppeteers.org

If you believe you are a member of the Puppeteers of America and it turns out that you are not, the P of A will simply send you an invoice for your membership. Easy, peasy!
