Strange Folk Festival 2012

Its the largest outdoor indie craft fest in the midwest! 150 vendors, 10 live bands, plus food, beer, and lots of people. They said over 15,000 people attended. Well worth going to, Im definitely trying this one again.

The 7th Annual Strange Folk Festival will be held in O’Fallon Community Park on Saturday, September 29 and Sunday, September 30 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. both days.  Admission and parking is free and the show goes on rain or shine.

This year, the event will host approximately150 indie crafters and artists from across the country.  Add great music, good food, free wi-fi, activities for kids, and you have “Strange Folk”, the Heartland’s largest outdoor indie art festival.  Family-friendly Strange Folk was voted “best craft festival in St. Louis” by the River Front Times.~ The River Front Times Street Team will be in attendance at this year’s festival.

Strange Folk has gained notability for its spunky counter-culture theme and eclectic variety of vendors selling clothing, accessories, jewelry, housewares, toys, art, and much more in affordable price ranges making it possible for anyone to afford one-of-a-kind handmade creations.  Notoriety has grown with national sponsorship.  Log on to to see a preview of vendor crafts.
