What is the Oddities & Curiosities Expo?

According to the official website,

"The Oddities & Curiosities Expo showcases hand-selected vendors, dealers, artists, and small businesses from all over the country with all things weird. You'll find items such as taxidermy, preserved specimens, original artwork, horror/Halloween-inspired pieces, antiques, handcrafted oddities, quack medical devices, creepy clothing, odd jewelry, animal skulls/bones, funeral collectibles & much more."

They are the first and the original traveling event dedicated to the oddities that people enjoy in the world.

When is the Oddities and Curiosities Expo coming to Michigan?

The Oddities & Curiosities Expo will be at DeVos Place - Hall A & B on Saturday, April 1st from 10 AM until 6 PM.

If you miss the Grand Rapids date, there is still another opportunity for you to see what goes bump in the night when they touch down in Detroit on July 15th, 2023.

Can I bring my entire family, including the kids?

The expo is open to all ages. However, if your kid gets easily frightened, you may want to keep them at home for this one.

Children 12 and under are free and do not need a ticket to enter.

What else will I get to see at the expo?

Besides the regular expo, there are additional attractions you can check out.

The Oddities Museum presents The Cryptic Collection of a Mad Clown.

"Imagine the end of a day at the carnival: you've had your fill of laughter, lights, and cotton candy. You wander to the quiet outskirts, looking for a place to be alone. As you leave the lights and enter the shadows, you encounter the remnants of a sideshow tent from years gone by. Weathered wood boxes cling to the perimeter of the tent. The ratty old entrance flap hangs, torn in the ghostly breeze. Skepticism takes a back seat to curiosity, and you take a step inside."

If this all tickles your fancy, you can buy your tickets in advance here for $12. If you want to buy tickets same day, they will be only $15.
