Fun with Puppets returns to Gen Con for the fifth year!
Puppetry is an ancient art form that has been used to educate, entertain, and inspire audiences of adults and children for centuries. Whether you’re already a puppeteer, interested in the art form, or you just want to be entertained, there’s puppetry programming at Gen Con that is sure to captivate you. We’re bringing in top performers in their field to offer everything from workshops, to shows for kids, to after-hours shows for adults-only.
