The Cambridge Wildlife Puppetry Project (CWPP) connects people of all ages to the urban wildlife and habitats of Cambridge, Mass. through participatory experiences in parades and puppetry. Join us to march as a Cambridge animal at these events:
The Fly, Buzz, Honk and Squeak! Mini-Parade, August 10, 2017
The Honk! Parade, October 8, 2017
We provide the costumes, puppets, and banners!
Sign up to stay in touch about roamabouts, parades, and other events.
In 2017, we “roamed about” as Cambridge wildlife species at the Cambridge Science Carnival (April 15th) and at the Cambridge River Festival (June 3rd), worked with families of the Pathways Program to make feathers for a giant Northern Cardinal puppet (February), and held a wildlife puppetry bonanza featuring Deborah Costine performing Turtle’s Wetland Quest, puppet-making and mask-making, for more than 50 kids at the Tobin Community School (June 7th). Our artistic collaborators have included the Puppeteer’s Cooperative, Cambridge sculptor Michelle Lougee, and the Beautiful Stuff Project.
See us marching in the 2013 Honk! Parade in this video.
