The 10th Annual St. Johns Bizarre is now accepting vendor applications! Please take a look at dates, details and other helpful information. We seek to create a balanced offering of vendors that appeals to the entire community.

St. Johns Bizarre craft booths

Last year, the Bizarre welcomed over 80 local vendors, selling an impressive array of handmade art and craft items, including jewelry and clothing, home goods, photography, and painting. Also featured each year are a number of food vendors, as well as booths featuring local community organizations.

2015 Poster revealed!

We are bursting with excitement to share with you the poster for this year’s St. Johns Bizarre, coming soon to a coffee shop window near you! The masterful creators over at Jolby & Friends are at the helm this year and have crafted some absolutely beautiful artwork that truly captures the spirit of the Bizarre and this wonderful neighborhood of St. Johns. We’ve long admired their work, whether it’s the detailed Brunch Box branding, the fabulous children’s book “Monsters Under Bridges” (featuring our own St. Johns Bridge!), or their recent redesign of the Hopworks Urban Brewery beer line. Check out more of their work here: http://jolbyandfriends.com/

And as always, we will have a limited run of signed and numbered screenprinted posters, as well as t-shirts, stainless steel pint cups (and new this year — aluminum water bottles!) featuring their work for purchase on Bizarre day!
