Strange Folk Festival, St. Louis’s largest and longest-running indie craft show, is expanding in 2018 with new events. The fist such event is the Strange Folk Potion Party at the Marquette Park Field House. Potion Party is a self-care market and hands-on event featuring ten pop-up shops from local makers of self-care products.

In addition to locally made soaps, bath, body, and skin care products, there will be tarot readings and a live art project. Blissoma Holistic Skincare will be offering hands-on instruction and materials to make your own healthy, natural skin treatments, while supplies last (reserve your spot here).

Potion Party starts at noon and goes until 6pm. The Marquette Park Field House is on the west side of the park, near Gasconade and Virginia.
