The Festival Neighborhood Tour fosters an appreciation for puppetry throughout the city by bringing free, family-friendly performances to locations outside of Chicago’s theaters, but areas in the city where people may not have the chance to see puppetry very often. The tour offers a range of high-quality puppetry styles in order to create moments of community enjoyment while expanding the base of puppet enthusiasts. This year, three nationally acclaimed puppet artists – Ty Defoe, Jerrell L. Henderson, and Joshua Holden – will tour to five locations around the city to present short works.

The Free Neighborhood Tour is supported by The Marshall Frankel Foundation.
