Join us to take part in a world-wide cat puppet parade - online!

Big cats. Little cats. Blue cats. Gray cats.

Parading through the global square.

Shy cats. Playful cats. Sleepy cats. Scaredy cats.

Will your puppet cat be there?


SpringWorks is pleased to join  Unima, the Union Internationale de la Marionette, in inviting you to make your very own cat puppet and join in the online parade.


Young fans of puppets… and cats… are invited to join us in videotaping their homemade cat pupets and sending them in to Unima. All cats will be shared on social media and celebrated on World Puppet Day on March 21, 2019. On that day, cat puppets from around the world will be shared globally. 


Whether you make your puppet cat at home, or join us for puppet making at the festival, we look forward to meeting your puppet friend!
