The History Of Puppet Festival Mississauga

Puppet Festival Mississauga (originally named Bridges Festival) began on March 13 2020. Our festival opened, the very day the pandemic started, and venues had to close across Ontario. We didn’t let this bad luck stop us! The next year we created an entirely online Festival, and 2022 was the first year we were able to program a in-person festival. From the very start we have always been committed to presenting the best events from around the world to families in Mississauga.
