The Southside Giant Puppet Workshop was a program organized by the Southside Community School to construct and perform with large-scale articulated puppets at parades and other events. The workshop was founded by Lyn Spotswood and Murray Haden.

The workshop was housed in various locations, including a midtown warehouse and the building now housing Dreamland Bar-B-Que at Phelan Park. In 1990 the group put up a stage on the "Community Art Lot" left vacant by the destruction of the Studio Arts Building at Five Points South. It closed down in February 1993.
