The Misfit Markets

We live in a time when you can find way too much of the same old stuff pretty much anywhere, whether it’s from malls or Amazon. We’re here to connect incredible artisans who are anything-but-normal and have built amazing delights, with people who’d love to meet creators and go home with things they won’t find anywhere else.

Misfit Market? Steampunk Festival? Multi-Genre rumpus? Halloween Vacation? Mother’s Day Weirdness?

We’re all that and more!

Firstly, we are incredible multi-genre Massive Misfit Market. And we don’t stop thereCatskills Halloween Vacation with a Steampunk/Nerd/Goth/Alternative Festival attached.

Furthermore, we are a massive and uniquely amazing Vendor & Oddities Market!

Finally, we are a Steampunk show that welcomes everyone (Steampunk or not!). On top of that, we are an alternative party to which everyone is invited. We’re a fairyland of being different. And, of course, we’re three days of pure joy in the October Catskills!
