In 2020, the Maribor Puppet Theatre is organising the 31st Summer Puppet Pier Festival, an international puppet festival with the longest tradition. This year’s version will be dedicated to Slovenian non-governmental puppet artists and will be complemented by guests from Austria, Croatia and Serbia. The performances will be diverse and intended for all generations, the emphasis will, of course, be on our youngest spectators.
Also this year, the programme will be enriched with workshops for children, film screenings, and together with the Art Camp, we will also organise puppet performances in the City park.
The festival will be held from 1st to 31st August.
ABOUT THE SPP
Since 1990, the Maribor Puppet Theatre has been organising the Summer Puppet Pier, an annual international summer festival in the city. Every year, in August, thousands of visitors enjoy an excellent programme. Primarily, the festival offers the best foreign and domestic puppet performances for children, as well as performances for adults, workshops, exhibitions, installations, and other accompanying events. With the support of the Municipality of Maribor, Maribor puppeteers every year
attract the best that the puppet world has to offer. Since the 30th Summer Puppet Pier festival, the best performance selected by the children's jury receives the Golden Giraffe Award.
