Strange Folk Festival says
Strange Folk Festival 2015 will be held at Union Station Mall, in St. Louis, MO on Saturday, September 26th 10am-8pm & Sunday, September 27 10am-5pm 2015

IMAGINE A MALL FULL OF MAKERS! This will be really special, and has never been attempted before.

St. Louis’ premiere local arts and craft show is taking over Union Station Mall in 2015. The decade-old event has changed locations to house vendors, hands-on crafts, local bands, and food trucks in the 120 year-old train station turned-shopping mall. Every usable empty store inside will be occupied by nearly 200 vendors selling everything from original artwork to hand-crafted fashion accessories and even 3D printers that they independently manufacture.They will work together to style and merchandise each space, and each shop will be a hashtag!

Local indie bands play from the 3rd floor all weekend:

SATURDAY
Stephen Korritta 11:00 AM
Cave of Swords 1:00 PM
Superfun Yeah Yeah Rocketship 3:00 PM
Silva Cantele 5:00 PM
Syna So Pro 7:00 PM

SUNDAY

Strange Folk features free craft projects in “Lasercorn’s Boho Craft Castle” and crowd-favorite children’s play area “Fort Featherbottom” is set in outer space. See Union Station transformed into a whimsical willowy forest, and sample some fudge. Festival founder, Autumn Wiggins, and notable creatives and small businesses from around the city have been working around the clock to revive St. Louis' once vibrant "festival marketplace."

Admission is FREE!
Parking is probably not! You can also take the Metrolink directly to the festival entrance tho.
