We’re excited to announce MONSTER MARKET PHOENIX – a one day celebration of independent artisans, artists, craftsmen and vendors with a spooky bent – coming to haunt your spectral sensibilities on Saturday October 7th at the MOXY Tempe, Tempe’s newest and coolest boutique hotel, across the street from the ASU Tempe campus!

MONSTER MARKET PHOENIX is not just a craft marketplace or convention, but rather a celebration of spooky culture. From vintage Halloween, to rockabilly, goth, horror and everywhere in between. We like seeing the original, imaginary, and fantastical; and we find things that go bump in the night tend to make for amazing artistic inspiration. From art, to crafts, jewelry, clothing and collectibles, MONSTER MARKET aims to showcase the independent creator and artisan working with a creative and ooky bent.

MONSTER MARKET was started by creators and vendors who are looking for something different in an event. We’re geared at showcasing creators and making them and their work the stars of our event. We are a juried marketplace, looking for diversity and originality and those whose work is showcased on our floor will be showcased as the stars of our event. We are looking to showcase the best and most creative spooky influenced voices in the Valley and we want to hear from you.

We are also working with Cult Classics, who are celebrating 6 years of local fun screening events, to showcase a Halloween month 30th anniversary moonlight “dive-in” screening of THE LOST BOYS, one of our Halloween favorites, as the close to our event! Plus, we’ll have plenty of the paranormal in the air with The House of Freaks Podcast recording a live ghostly podcast at the event!

We’ll also have some Creepy Creator Spotlights, with creators showcasing how to make your holiday darker and opportunities to show off your eeriest costume for the holidays! More to come soon!
