Founder and Owner
Founded and owned by Julia Pankhurst, Pickup-stix was built from the ground up as a pioneer group for its time. Beginning in 1992, it was the first stilt walking company in Ohio. She pushed the boundaries of stilt walking perceptions by specializing in this craft.
Over the years, our group and reach has grown to entertain millions of people from far and wide.
Pickup-stix stilt walkers train to be able to perform to the best of their abilities. This makes us not only the best costumed but also the best interactive performers that make sure your event is an unforgettable success!
