The Carroll County Arts Council welcomes anyone with a sweet sense of humor and artistic skill to enter a Peeptastic creation in our 16th Annual PEEPshow.

March 31 – April 10, 2023

We’ll accept dioramas, sculpture, mosaics, photography, paintings, videos, and computer-generated art that feature PEEPS® as their primary subject matter or artistic medium. Entries do not have to be made with PEEPS® or edible materials, just as long as it is clearly PEEPS® themed.


This year’s show returns to our space at the TownMall of Westminster (located next to Boscovs). As always, voting will take place at both the live event and online.

If you need help registering your entry, email or call 410-848-7272.

Registration is CLOSED
