The Bizarre Bazaar will provide an international collection of conscious art and high spirited vendors. Featuring goods found nowhere else, the eclectic global market will tempt purses and spirits. Magical offerings will include art, jewelery, Indian handicrafts, hemp wears, bouncy wears, blown glass, massage, raw foods, Indian foods, and fresh juices. Goods and gear not found on the beaten path, as well as healing and cosmic arts.
The How Weird Street Faire will begin and end with a Native American prayer for peace and unity, with a drum circle to finish. The Street Faire also provides booths for non-profit organizations and community groups to network with and inform people of current issues. Environmental causes will be represented, especially those concerned with hemp culture and industry.
