It's no big surprise that Boulevard Trash Entertainment is hosting its Oddities & Curiosities Expo in New Orleans given its spooky voodoo history. If you're an enthusiast of the unusual, this is the best place to acquaint yourself with artists, vendors, dealers, and collectors of bizarre novelties.
The show will occur on Saturday, January 29, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center. Guests will get to indulge themselves in creepy costumes, handcrafted Halloween décor, skulls and bones, taxidermy, and horror-themed collectibles. Tickets cost $10 in advance and $15 at the door. Kids under 12 get free admission.
Two events will take place at the expo. Rainy Day Revival will present "Museum of Marvelous Mutations: The World's Largest Traveling Freak Show," where spectators will marvel at the world's greatest mysteries such as mythical Cyclopes, polycephalic creatures, and multi-limbed monsters. Sleeping Sirens's Heather Clark will also host a taxidermy class where taxidermists of all experience levels will build a two-headed duckling from scratch.
The Oddities & Curiosities Expo is a DIY-ran event that prides itself as the first traveling show to showcase weird and creepy oddities. Don't worry--all items are totally legal and sustainable!
