Over 200 artisans and mystics, as well as psychics and spiritual leaders will be on hand to meet with the public and showcase their talents and crafts to those intrigued.
While delving into the occult, why not help yourself to a cocktail by Lake Witch (@bartenderwitch) and her coven cocktail collection.
Guests will also be able to dive more into the occult by meeting with Starla Moore, the honorary guest speaker of the event, to help those dive deeper into seeking their powers, along with meeting their “familiar”, which is a term used as a spiritual guide, mainly in the shape of an animal, to help guide and protect their witch master.
