About this event

Punch and Judy 11am and 2pm 

“That’s the way to do it!” The ‘Punch and Judy’ show has been entertaining audiences for well over 350 years! Mr. Punch, the original rebellious rascal, is at it again! He’s lazy, he’s wicked, and he’s out to trick everyone who tries to sort him out. Surely one of these days he’ll get his just deserts… won’t he? Featuring snapping crocodiles, tremendous tickling, and delightful devilment for the whole family!

Rod Puppet Workshops 11:45am, 1:45pm, and 2:45pm

Make your very own rod puppet of any character you can imagine, in this easy to do workshop by the Cork Puppetry Company. From slimy frogs to sparkling fairies or Chesire cats anything is possible! Suitable for children 4 years and up.  

Performance by The Underscore Orkestra Jazz Combo 12:30pm and 3:15pm

Members of The Underscore Orkestra playing Jazz, Swing, and Blues. Instrumentation, Sax/Clarinet, Guitar, Bull Fiddle, Percussion and Vocals. Guaranteed to get your toes tapping and your hips shaking.

Tree Fellas by Frank Wurzinger (UK) Live on the big screen 1:15pm and 4pm

Tree Fellas is a hilarious, interactive comedy walkabout about a tree family looking for somewhere to settle down. As the forests are getting smaller and smaller these trees choose to live with the humans. Our walking and talking trees blend in with human behavior, interact and cause gentle chaos by putting down roots in the wrong place, telling stories about their ancient lives, playing games with the humans and bringing nature’s beauty to town. Two performers in oversized tree costumes and one sapling puppet looking like real trees- the only difference: they talk, walk, tease and misbehave and they have a story to tell
