In April 2017 community members gathered together to discuss the possibility of starting a Salem Puppet Parade. We felt a need to build community through engaging art making and performance. Larger than life puppets would promote art awareness, cultural and civic pride, and provide a platform for artisans to tell their diverse stories through art. This is the place where the wacky and weird gather to celebrate our quirks and unique stories.
We worked out a mission:
A community puppet parade that brings together people of all ages and backgrounds to celebrate local ecology and rich culture of the valley through visual and performing arts.
And we want you to join the fun. Sign up to learn more about the parade. We’ll send you monthly updates to your inbox. This event can only be great with your support!
