A Festival of Oddities 2021

Voted one of the top local art festivals in 2020’s Top of The Town competition, Mid-Michigan’s original oddities festival is presented by Scream Queen Productions and The Courthouse Square Association.
Admission to the grounds is free for all ages. On the lawn, you’ll find our Macabre Marketplace featuring over 100 of the state’s most talented artists and makers. Visit Food Truck Row for a wide variety of delicious cuisine from all over The Mitten. Stop by the Kitten Tent hosted by Saved by Zade and adopt a new furry family member. Play vintage carnival games to raise money for the Epilepsy Foundation of Michigan. Visit Erica Jo Photography’s vintage circus-themed Photo Booth and take home a one-of-a-kind souvenir.

Each stately room is brimming with historical artifacts, some stranger than others. Ever heard of an electro-thermo bath? Yeah, they’ve got one of those. They’ve also got restless spirits wandering the halls, if you’re into that sort of thing. Attend presentations in the grand courtroom hosted by experts in the fields of true crime, the paranormal, and the macabre. Meet the Paranormal Collective, a group of experienced investigators from around the state. Hear their first-hand accounts of hauntings in Michigan, and get an up-close and personal look at how their gear works.
