At the Art Hop, you know how we love all things creative, imaginative, out-of-the-box, surprising, and clever. Throw in costumes and we’re over the moon! So you can only imagine how much we love having the very first outdoor Oddmall Backyard Bash happening on the very same night as the Art Hop!
Backyard Bash will be at Hudson Park Center, 5245 Darrow Road, alongside three of our regular Art Hop stops: The Red Twig, Live.Dream.Create, and Shack in the Back.
The OddMall Backyard Bash features about 150 artists and vendors, live entertainment and food trucks. Hours are Friday, 5-9pm, and Saturday, 10am-6pm. Admission is free but a $5 donation is recommended.
Live.Dream.Create will be open during the event with work by a variety of artists including industrial lighting from Ken Love. The Red Twig will host visual artist Zak Lyons of Toledo and Adam Pate with his live event sketches and portraits.
Demos on Friday night include Black Angus of Vahalla’s Anvil with his mini forge and lampwork by Fulgur and Bessemer Designs. Killer Instinct Never Dies will perform at 8pm. A hula hoop demonstration and contest for kids will take place both days.
Visitors are encouraged to dress up, and costumes/cosplay are both welcome and encouraged.
Please follow the signs to free parking at JoAnn Fabrics, and ride the comfy shuttle bus to the festivities.
