Moonlight Gypsy Market


Elizabeth Ogletree

The 4th annual Moonlight Gypsy Market boasts a collection of strange, erotic, macabre and outsider crafts, fashions and performances. Kicking off at sundown, the Little Kings patio will transform into a bazaar, hosting vendors such as Revelations Reiki and Crystals, tarot card reader Anni Paisley, Mr. Blank’s Odditorium of Endearing Items, Gumball Machine Records and Drive-By Truckers’ visual artist Wes Freed. Vaudeville troupe Carnivale of Black Hearts—now under the direction of Madame Surayyah—will present acts by Preya, Sarah Runels, members of Secret City Burlesque and the Athens Burn Consortium. Other performances include Boycycle and The Great Impo’s magic show, and the night will culminate with a fiery finale by the Black Heart Burn Unit backed by DJs BeatmatchedHearts. The market highlights the dark underbelly of Athens culture, welcoming the chilly months ahead. Moonlight Gypsy Market begins at 7:30 p.m. Admission is free for the market and $5 for the show.
