The PEEPshow is the Carroll County Arts Council's largest fundraiser. The Arts Council is a 501c3 non-profit arts organization located in a renovated 1937 movie theatre in downtown Westminster, Maryland. Our Mission is to enrich our community, both culturally and economically, by presenting, promoting and supporting a wide variety of arts opportunities for our residents, visitors, and artists.

To the best of our knowledge, the Carroll County Arts Council's PEEPshow is the oldest annual PEEPS® art exhibit in the world! We owe our inspiration to the Washington Post's diorama photo contest that debuted in 2007. Past Arts Council Executive Director, Sandy Oxx, entered the Post's first contest but did NOT win a prize. The experience inspired Sandy to envision all of the fantastic artistic possibilities of an exclusively PEEPS® themed art show. In 2008, the first PEEPS® art show opened at the Carroll Arts Center with just 60 entries, but it was a huge success and a sweet tradition began. This year, we're back at the former Sears location in the TownMall of Westminster (400 N Center Street in Westminster, MD) in the same space as 2021!

The PEEPshow has grown every year since and now features over 100 unique PEEPS® creations. Along the way, the event has gathered amazing media coverage, accolades, and attracted tens of thousands of people. Coverage of the PEEPshow has appeared on The NBC Nightly News, People Magazine, Time, Buzzfeed, Gizmodo, ESPN, Who Wants to be a Millionaire, and even internationally. Entries from the PEEPshow have made their way to displays at the Just Born company headquarters, the American Visionary Arts Museum, the official Peeps & Co. store, and the PEEPSFEST New Year's Eve Celebration. We are continuously amazed by the marshmallow masterpieces that our artists submit.
