Strange Folk Festival is now going to be at….


We can’t tell you, but we’re pretty excited to!

Though we reserved Lafayette Park last October, after a long process, we were notified that our permits would not be approved, and we could not appeal the decision. Ever since we’ve been working every day to make another great location a reality and announce this move as quickly as possible. Other types of venues might be easier to get permits for, but securing a public park that fits all our needs will be so worth the wait.

We’ve chosen a perfect new location and are working diligently with the City of St. Louis to fulfill all the requirements of various departments.

In the meantime, everything’s coming together…

Like we do.

It’ll be rad!

And we’ll let you know about it.


We <3 our vendors, bands, volunteers, and attendees. Please hang tight. Our aim is pure and our whimsy is strong!
