World Puppet Carnival
The World Puppet Carnival welcomes puppeteers from all over the world to meet in exotic and beautiful Indonesia for the Wayang - World Puppet Carnival. The World Puppet Carnival produces carnivals and festivals around the globe. Our events are seen in theaters, streets, cultural centers, parks, schools and hospitals. Puppeteers are inspired to share their art, culture and customs. We introduce children, families and adults to the magical Art of Puppetry. We fill children’s hearts with love for puppets as an alternative to video and electronic games. We help puppets become a child’s best friend.
