BOB BAKER DAY 2018

The 4th Annual Celebration of Bob Baker’s ongoing legacy. Let the puppets & the people of the Bob Baker Marionette Theater entertain you with the sights and sounds of a celebration you’ll never forget.

A whimsical Carnival, sponsored by City Council District #1, includes an all-day outdoor stage with live music and entertainment, puppet-making workshops with the Los Angeles Guild of Puppetry, midway games, educational and exhibition booths from the local art community,  food trucks, walk around entertainment and more! With round-the-clock puppet shows and a pop-up puppet museum going on inside the Theater, this is one celebration not to be missed.

DJ Lance Rock of Yo Gabba Gabba!
Join us at 10:00am for Puppet Procession Opening Ceremony!
Bring along your very favorite puppet to see DJ Lance receive his Bob Baker Day 2018 Scepter, then march with him and Vice President of the City of Los Angeles Cultural Affairs Commission John Wirfs, the Highland Park Thursday Evening Gentlemen’s Society Circuit Bending Marching Band and Ladies’ Auxiliary and the Bob Baker Marionettes to our theater gates for the most oversized ribbon cutting you’ve ever seen!

CARNIVAL CELEBRATION

The Velaslavasay Panorama will be present (between Noon & 4:00 P.M.) with a walking exhibition of our miniaturized Grand Moving Mirror of California, a moving panorama of the California Gold Rush.
First conceived in 1853 by “Dr.” L.E. Emerson, then reimagined and recreated by the Velaslavasay Panorama in 2010, the Grand Moving Mirror of California is a monumental 275-foot, hand-painted scroll which is housed in the Union Theatre on 24th Street.
A Miniature version of the Grand Moving Mirror will be on display at Bob Baker Day with live foley sounds, a crankist, and an orator giving presentations of the early-cinema experience.
