Sugarloaf Craft Festivals - Juried Art & Craft Festivals Since 1976

Children’s Entertainment

Sugarloaf is Fun for the Whole Family

The Sugarloaf Crafts Festival provides great family-fun entertainment for everyone! Our shows are popular with children, as there are plenty of children’s activities to keep them entertained. In addition to getting to see wonderful crafts and art, kids have the opportunity to see the artisans at work up close! Throughout our shows, different artisans hold demonstrations to show how their creation process. This is a wonderful opportunity for children to not only see first-hand how art is made, but also is a great way to introduce them to a great potential interest. Craft demonstrations include stone sculpting, papermaking, copper spinning, wheel thrown pottery, and wood carving.

Middle Earth Studio

Puppet Show

Sugarloaf Craft Festivals are fun for the whole family. We provide Children’s Entertainment with Middle Earth Studios, a puppet show designed to enrich your child’s imagination through costume storytelling. Each puppet show engages as many as 90 children of all ages with props and costumes. Every participant becomes a part of the story as soon as the storyteller begins. The story is different every time, and every participant becomes a hero in some way.

Middle Earth Studios has delighted children at festivals and fairs around the country for years with their repertoire of enchanting fairytales and puppet shows. Now your children can enjoy Middle Earth Studios’ newest puppet show, featuring a 15-foot tall grandfather clock that’s really a time machine and the man or rather, the puppet, who invented it!

In addition to the Middle Earth Puppet Show, there are craft demonstrations throughout the show including stone sculpting, papermaking, copper spinning, wheel thrown pottery, and wood carving.
