FestiFOOLs Goes Virtual!

FestiFOOLs unveils a brand-new, virtual online Festival of Miniature Puppet Vignettes!  The awesome students in the University of Michigan’s Lloyd Scholars for Writing and the Arts are making super tiny, fabulously FOOLish, video puppet vignettes!  Tune in on Sunday, April 5 at 4pm to experience FestiFOOLs/Virtual!

CALLING ALL T-SHIRT ARTISTS!  FestiFOOLs is looking for YOU — kiddos especially — to send them YOUR foolish designs for its official 15th Anniversary T-shirt for 2021!  This design contest is designed with young artists in mind so get the kids busy NOW!  Submit your designs HERE by SUNDAY, APRIL 5 and contact festifoolsvirtual@umich.edu for more info.  The top 10 T-shirt design winners will win a FREE, official 2021 FestiFOOLs T-shirt!
