May 6 @ 11:00 am - 8:00 pm$10
The 3rd Annual World Goth Day Festival will take place at the Empress Theatre, Vallejo, Solano County, on May 6, 2023, from 11 am to 8 pm. The 3rd Annual World Goth Day Festival is a highly curated, immersive, innovative, and full sensory, multi-interdimensional and experiential festival gala of transcendent dark art, music, entertainment and black pageantry that delves into and passionately explores over 40-years of influential and incomparable San Francisco Bay Area Goth Subculture.
ART: The 3rd Annual World Goth Day Festival will feature an extravagant Art Market, proudly produced by Connstance and Michael Garcia, founders of the lauded and inimitable Menagerie Oddities Market™, whose credo is, “This Ain’t Yer Grannies Craft Fair™.” On display will be 50 artisans, creators, crafters and purveyors of eccentrically and esoterically Gothic baubles, trinkets, ornaments, novelties, knickknacks, and ephemera, such as elegant jewelry, clothing, accessories, photography, home decor, taxidermy, and works of fine art and other collectible oddities and curiosities created from components, parts, pieces, items and elements hand-made, foraged and found. The Menagerie Oddities Market™ draws a merry band of nomadic, feral and cultishly-dedicated, awesomely awe-inspiring, anomalously aberrant, distinctively divergent and devient, as well as idiosyncratic and individualistic misfit artists from near and as far away as New York, South Carolina, Portland, and Los Angeles who regularly participate in the now, nearly 40, annual fantastical and festishized themed Curiosities Shows, Peculiar Pop-Ups, Residencies and Festival events projected for 2023.
MUSIC AND LIVE ENTERTAINMENT: The 3rd Annual World Goth Day Festival will also be filled with captivating fun and engaging live entertainment and music, including four lauded live bands performing in the evening at the Empress Theatre; Ausgang (from the UK), Black Angel, Ms. Boan, and Unwoman, the latter of whom will be performing during afternoon festival hours.
Also featured are 7 DJs of local and international pedigree performing throughout the day; a bevy of bonafide roving performers and entertainers; as well as a fashion show hosted by legendary drag performer Redd FaFilth (instagram.com/reddfafilth), who will be the esteemed hostess with the mostess as she channels the spirit of iconic Drag Royalty, Divine: Mistress of Ceremonies!
