A little bit about Strange Folk…

Strange Folk Festival is 13-year-running nationally recognized indie craft show known for its eclectic variety of artists, indie makers, designers, and vintage curators. We are entering our 3rd season hosting outdoor events in beautiful Carondelet Park! Attendance in September has ranged from 10,000-20,000 annually over the last decade. The festival is styled and operated by it’s original founder, Autumn Wiggins, with creative and logistical contributions by many talented individuals and entities. Check out a collection of over 4,000 photos of #strangefolkfestival on Instagram to see all the makers, fun, and fur babies for yourself.
