Strange Folk is the Heartland's largest outdoor indie arts and crafts show. At the third annual event in 2008, it featured 120 modern makers from across the country, and more than doubled the turn-out from the previous year to over 10,000 people!

Strange Folk is looking for alternative and indie bands to play throughout the weekend. No folk or classic rock submissions please, as the festival is strictly interested in indie bands. For a list of bands who played in 2008, please go to There are at least 6 performance slots available. Artists keep 100% of merch sales, and compensation is negotiable.

Strange Folk’s vendors offer merchandise with aesthetics ranging from retro, pretty, punk, urban, and everything in between. All in price ranges that make it possible for anyone to afford a one-of-a-kind handmade creation. Plenty of eco-friendly craft activities and exhibits are a hallmark of this show as well. Strange Folk hosts a variety of food and drink options too, including coffee and vegetarian fare.

Please note: The festival is a family event with plenty of children around. So, as long as you don't cuss too obviously or scream bloody murder, you'll fit in just fine.
