Can't get enough of marionettes? You'll love the Chicago International Puppet Theater Festival, which brings puppeteers from across the globe to the city for 11 days of symposiums and more than 100 performances and events. The Puppet Hub returns this year, which includes site-specific events throughout different spaces in the Fine Arts Building on Michigan Avenue—take a look around to find everything from a puppet-themed cafe to film screenings in the building’s massive Studebaker Theater. Also back is the Ellen Van Volkenburg Symposium, workshops with visiting puppet artists, the Catapult Artist Intensive, a new series of Book Talks and more. For a full list of performances, visit the festival’s website
