12th Annual Peep Show

12th Annual PEEPshow at the

 Carroll Arts Center

The Carroll Arts Center is tickled pink….and yellow….and blue…to announce the 12th annual PEEPshow to be held Friday, April 12 through Tuesday April 23 at the Carroll Arts Center.  This sweet event features nearly 200 marshmallow masterpieces, including sculptures, dioramas, mosaics and even videos, all crafted from or inspired by PEEPS®.  This major regional event has attracted the attention of NBC Nightly News, the Food Network, and Just Born, the company that has made PEEPS® since the 1940’s.

 

PEEPS® are a confection created by Just Born of Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. The candy has achieved an almost cult-like following. Several large metropolitan newspapers across the country have organized diorama contests around these sweet treats, but none of them rival the scale and quality of what will be on display at the Carroll Arts Center.

 

Last year the PEEPshow attracted more than 26,000 visitors. Previous year’s events have featured a wide variety of entries, including an 8-foot dragon, the Swedish Chef from the Muppets Show, Goofy, Snoopy, Winnie-the-Pooh, the Statue of Peeperty, and a host of magical monsters, sports heroes, movie characters and other clever celebrations of pop culture, history, and fine art.  In addition, there are “Peep” film entries shown in the Arts Center’s 263-seat movie theatre.  Last year’s entries featured a total of 36,500 PEEPS®!

 

Prize packages will be awarded to the five entries receiving the most in-person votes and to the five entries receiving the most online votes. The overall Grand Prize winner will be determined by combining the number of in-person and online votes and will receive an extra special prize package. There will be an additional award for the favorite video. Voting will end at 6 pm on the final day of the event.

 

All proceeds will benefit the Carroll County Arts Council, one of the community’s most vibrant non-profit organizations. Admission to the event is free.  Hours are 10 am to 7 pm Sunday through Thursday (including Easter Sunday) and 10 am – 9 pm on Fridays and Saturdays. The last entry each day will be 30 minutes before closing. Visitors should be prepared for the possibility of waiting in long lines that form outside the building. Groups with special needs are encouraged to call at least 10 days in advance for accommodations.

 

The Carroll Arts Center is located at 91 West Main Street in downtown Westminster. For more information call 410-848-7272 or visit www.CarrollCountyArtsCouncil.org.
