The Oddities & Curiosities Expo showcases hand selected vendors, dealers, artists and small businesses with all things weird. You’ll find items such as: taxidermy, preserved specimens, original artwork, horror/halloween inspired pieces, antiques, handcrafted oddities, quack medical devices, creepy clothing, odd jewelry, skulls/bones, funeral collectibles & much more. We truly have something weird for everyone at our shows. All items you see at our shows are legal to own and sustainably sourced.
The O&C Expo provides a safe place for anyone to come and discover new artists, meet new friends and be surrounded by an amazing community of like-minded people. We pride ourselves in being a completely “DIY” ran show from start to finish. We find so much joy in being able to provide a place where you can feel at home surrounded by others that share the same interests.
We are the first and original traveling event exclusively showcasing oddities vendors and dark artists in the country. We are a one of a kind event and the first to do what we specialize in. We take tremendous pride in this and hope to gain your support along the way.
*Rainy Day Revival: FREAK SHOW!*
Step right up and be mesmerized and blown away! Come see Rainy Day Revival, from Atlanta Georgia, presenting a real Freak Show!
You can have a true carnival sideshow experience and gaze upon many real wonders of nature with your very own eyes. These animals were born into this world this way, and now we bring them to you to witness in person. You will probably leave with more questions than answers, but you will be excited that among the many unforgettable creatures you will meet Simon the Cyclops Lamb and Beefcake the Bulldog Calf. The time has come to see something you have never seen before and go home with something truly unbelievable to talk about.

Come join us for our two headed duckling taxidermy class hosted by Heather Clark of Sleeping Sirens. From total novice to experienced taxidermist, everyone is welcome to partake. Build your two headed duckling mount from scratch with hands on help and a comprehensive walkthrough guide. Your duckling specimen, tools/supplies, and creative goodies are supplied – just bring yourself and your imagination. All specimens are sustainably sourced, NOTHING was killed for the sake of the class or the O&C Expo.
Two 15 minute breaks and a 30 minute lunch allow you to still shop at the O&C Expo.
Class price and ticketing are per person, no sharing is allowed. Each person in class must have a ticket.
Students under 18 are encouraged but require parent or legal guardian permission. Parents or legal guardians of students that are 16 or under may accompany the student in the classroom, but we need to know in advance.
Tickets are non refundable. Once your ticket is purchased our instructor preps your hides and your supplies are ordered just for you.
Previous students please note that each class is completely different! You will learn an entirely new set of skills and methods for taxidermy. We hope to continue to help you expand your hands on knowledge.
