The Oddities & Curiosities Expo is coming to Tampa. On Sat., Nov. 5, head to the Tampa Convention Center (333 S. Franklin St.) from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. for a showcase of all things weird. Here’s what to expect at this year’s expo.
Due to the expo’s popularity, there will be timed entry ticketing this year. General admission is $10 in advance and $15 at the door. Bring the family — kids 12 and under get in for free.
What you’ll see
A general admission ticket gets you access to peruse and shop from a selection of vendors, dealers, and artists offering oddities like antiques, art, funeral collectibles, and other morbid curiosities. Those being — creepy baby dolls, animal skeletons, octopus-filled crystal balls, and everything in between.
For an additional $5, you can also buy admission to the Museum of Marvelous Mutations — an educational walk-through booth appropriate for all ages.
Or take the 2-Headed Duckling Taxidermy Class hosted by Heather Clark of The Sleeping Sirens. Get hands-on taxidermy experience for $235 (admission included). The class runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., but don’t worry — there will be breaks to allow you time to shop the vendors.
