‘Oddities & Curiosities Expo’ Coming To Minnesota In May
DO YOU LIKE WEIRD THINGS?
Are you fascinated by things like ‘The Guinness Book of World Records’? I used to love paging through those books at my Grandparent's house when I was a kid. I was fascinated by so many things.
THE ODDITIES & CURIOSITIES EXPO
If you enjoy the oddities of life, then you might want to make plans to visit ‘The Oddities & Curiosities Expo’, taking place on Saturday, May 20th, 2023 at the Minneapolis Convention Center.
The Oddities & Curiosities Expo will feature hand-selected vendors, dealers, artists, and small businesses that have weird things. What do we mean by weird? Well, things like taxidermy, horror/Halloween-inspired pieces of art, antiques, strange medical devices, creepy clothing, skulls and bones, funeral collectibles, handcrafted oddities, preserved specimens, and much more.
The Oddities & Curiosities Expo was the first of its kind traveling event that showcases ‘dark artists’ in the United States. They invite anyone and everyone to come and discover new artists, make new friends, and surround themselves with amazing like-minded people, who just might make you feel like you belong.
