Join us for an entire day of hands on bubble fun, live music, face painting and more at our first ever BubbleFest!
Learn all about the science behind bubbles, and see how bubbles can change form as professional bubble artists expose the wonders of these remarkable spheres.
Join the artist, Sterling Johnson as he creates beautiful, large bubbles with found objects and experience the wonder of Tom Noddy’s Bubble Magic! Tom has taken his uniquely warm and charming sense of wonder and delight in soap bubbles to audiences around the world. The bubbles are truly exquisite and Tom’s lively humor and engaging sense of fun leave his audiences both delighted and intrigued.
After three appearances on The Tonight Show, Tom was featured on the Best of the Year Tonight Show segment. In his 20-plus-year career as America’s Bubble Guy he has appeared on numerous prime time television shows as well as night clubs and universities. Tom’s work has been presented to 900 mathematicians at the International Congress of Mathematics in Berlin, Germany. He has been the featured performer for science center Bubble Festivals attracting up to seventeen thousand people in a single weekend. He is as comfortable performing for pre-schoolers as he is when entertaining audiences in the variete theaters of Germany, the Paris Opera, Le Casino nightclub in Monte Carlo, corporate parties, trade shows, or television throughout the world.
Sterling has performed versions of his remarkable hand-blown bubbles for over 45 years. He is the only person to ever put a bubble inside a bubble inside a bubble on stage without any tubes or straws, and the first person to walk completely through a bubble film!
