San Diego's Balboa Park Puppet Guild is a Federal and State 501(c)3 organization. All donations are tax deductible. We are looking for assistance in upgrading the experience for children of all ages. We are one of the smallest organizations in Balboa Park, and we receive NO assistance from any government entity. Admissions and donations allow us to operate and give the public a live performance for a low price.
