Oakland’s Epic Halloween Yard Haunt & DIY Puppet Show | East Bay

Driveway Follies offers a rare opportunity to see the nearly lost art of marionette puppetry in an intimate setting. Driveway Follies is recognized for providing professionally staged family-friendly Halloween marionette performances each year in Oakland.

The repertoire celebrates and illustrates historic and cultural aspects of Halloween, some with an educational twist. Since inception, a diverse audience of over 10,000 Halloween revelers has enjoyed the performances. Driveway Follies is unique alternative to the gore and commercialism that has become a part of modern Halloween.

Driveway Follies 2019

Halloween Night: Thursday, October 31, 2019 | Dusk ’til late

The two nights before Halloween, Driveway Follies opens the stage for neighbors and friends for “preview nights.” The shows start at dusk until the crew calls it a night.

This show is a Halloween tradition created by the legendary, late puppeteer Larry Schmidt, who many of us miss dearly. Larry was a very talented person & prolific artist. Everyone is encouraged to come see puppets he created in action just as he intended. It promises to be a magical experience for everyone.
