Just in time for Halloween, the Dark Arts Festival has come to town. This daylong market will showcase local makers that celebrate fantasy, mystery, goth, and witchcraft in their work. Items include leather pieces that add edge to any ensemble, coffin-shaped boxes, homemade candles, steampunk jewelry, unique tarot cards, and totally metal pins and stickers featuring pentagrams and hairless cats. Whether you’re a pagan stocking up on wintertime goods or darkness is just your preferred esthetic, you’ll find something covetable here. The day will also include a costume contest for kids and adults, food and drink, workshops, and live music from a variety of experimental and ambient groups.
