The 2022 St. Johns Bizarre has been canceled

As the world takes hopeful steps towards recovery from this pandemic, we are opting to not hold the St. Johns Bizarre in 2022. We love St. Johns and all of you who make it so special (especially on Bizarre and Parade day). We hope to gather and celebrate with you in 2023.

In the meantime, please stay safe and take care of each other and do what you can to support our local businesses and our vibrant music and craft scenes.

The 2021 St. Johns Bizarre has been canceled

We regret to say this but we will not be holding the St. Johns Bizarre in 2021. When we made the hard decision to cancel the Bizarre last year we were optimistic that things would be different in a year’s time. Unfortunately, even with the many positive steps that we as a state and as a country are making, it’s clear that we are still many months away from being able to safely host an event like ours. 

Please stay vigilant this year and continue to wear masks, practice social distance and get the vaccine when you are able. If we all continue to work together and take care of one another we can more quickly get to the other side of this and gather and celebrate once again as a community. Stay safe.

The 2020 St. Johns Bizarre has been canceled

We have made the hard decision to cancel the St. Johns Bizarre this year. We were holding out hope that we could postpone it to a later date but after many discussions we’ve realized that there are just too many unknowns for what the rest of the year holds for us to be able to do that safely and successfully. We wish this wasn’t the case for so many reasons. 

Please mark your calendars for May 8th, 2021 when the St. Johns Bizarre returns, and until then stay home and stay safe!
