Join this bazaar of the bizarre at the Denver Mart on Oct. 6.
File this under things you must see to believe. Lovers of all things strange and unusual will not want to miss the Oddities & Curiosities Expo. Vendors of the odd, sideshow acts, and so much more will take over the Denver Mart on Oct. 6.
This bizarre bazaar returns to Denver again to tantalize the senses and stir the soul. Taxidermy, wet specimens, antiques, odd jewelry, unusual art, bones, and other creepy and unique items will be on display for you to peruse and ponder.
The expo will also host a variety of jaw-dropping performers, a throwback to classic sideshows, including Slim the Living Cyborg, Spellbound Hypnosis and more.

But, wait, there’s more! How does human suspension grab you (with hooks, I’d wager)? There will be suspension demonstrations throughout the day, and for a fee, you can try it out for yourself and take the hooks home with you as a souvenir.
There are too many confirmed vendors to count, with a full house expected to be on hand to display their oddities. So, if you broke your favorite squirrel-jaw necklace or need a voodoo doll of your boss (who doesn’t?), you’ll find it and so much more at the expo. Follow the event’s Facebook event page for updates on performers, vendors, and more.
