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 photo booth and take home a one-of-a-kind souvenir.

Buy autographed copies of their books and chat with them one-on-one.
Admission to the historic Courthouse Square Museum is $5/person. Explore oddities from around the globe, including The Sturgill Collection presented by Stimson Hospital. 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. Search the Snake Pit hosted by Saving Scales Reptile Rescue for the perfect cold-blooded addition to your household. Bid on thousands of dollars worth of unique wares donated by our vendors to raise money for charity.
The mission of A Festival of Oddities is to provide support to local small businesses, artists, and charitable organizations, all while offering the community a fun, affordable, unique experience. Come be a part of the festival with heart. We are the weirdos, mister! And now it’s time to show the world.

Freakshow Film Festival

Fresh off winning Best Short Film at this year’s Scarefest Film Festival in Lexington, we’re bringing our film back home to the historic Eaton Theatres in Charlotte for some Halloween fun.

Come just outside Lansing to start the night with the Michigan Nordic Fire Festival, after which the Fine Freakshow Folks are following The Third Day with (of course) the original Halloween. But Wait, there’s MORE! Cast and Crew we will be attending the After Party right downtown at The Hall, where pizza and beer will be accompanied by a (likely) all-too-honest Q&A. Looks like we’ll be signing posters and some brand-spankin’ new DVDs! Hope to see you all there!

$5 gets you all the fun!
