See all Folkmanis Puppets and Kids Books at Choochokum Jul 11 - 12, Langley Washington

July 11-12, 2009, are the dates for the 34th annual Choochokam Arts festival in downtown Langley. Each year there is a gathering in Langley WA of artists that display their work on First Street and Anthes Avenue. It is a great street fair. Unique art work. Lots of food selections. And beautiful vistas from the town shores.

This is an ideal time to come and visit our unique store with all of the Folkmanis puppets and over a hundred children's books matched to go with them. You can see our puppets and books on the main floor or try on one of many kids or adult sized dressup hats in our second floor.

"Come enjoy the community celebration of Whidbey Island's rich arts heritage. The picturesque streets of downtown Langley are lined with 100 premier artists. The air is filled with the sounds from four separate stages, each with its own flavor."

• Meet and converse with Puget Sound artists who work in all mediums. Purchase art directly from its creator.
• Listen and dance to the music of some of the hottest up-and-coming new performers in the region.
• Join us in celebration at our Saturday night Street Dance, a community tradition for decades.
• Bring your children to our Children's Arts Area, a great place to immerse future artists in hands-on projects.


  1. Gosh...
    I'm realist enough to know it mustn't always been pink and party, but you guys have such a gorgeous and fun shop... What I'd give to work there! It's like a paradise! Storybooks, puppets and magic all around. :)
    I hope you're proud, 'cause you should be.

    Someday I'll have to find a way to visit.

  2. Well, it is pretty darn cute. But I owe that to Tess who selects all the books and arranges them with the puppets.
