When we started Junk Hippy in 2012, we were under the restrictions of our venue. We had to do it their way. Now, we finally have the freedom and the support to make it what we have always wanted our events to be...
In my mind, it's a mix of the best flea markets on the east and west coasts, vintage shopping in funky little shops in touristy towns, with a little bit of Coachella and Woodstock thrown in, all out in the sunshine. Laurel Canyon meets Round Top. With the blessing of my hometown, and the amazing vendor family we've grown in the last five years, this is happening!
October 14 and 15, in my little hometown of El Reno, Oklahoma, we will transform a rodeo arena and grassy lot into this amazing thing I've been envisioning. A festival for the junkers, the foodies, the groupies, the DIY queens and kings, a place for all the kindred spirits to come together.
We are excited to bring something a little different to this event! We all work hard, we need a time to play too. Friday night, October 14, we will transform the rodeo arena into a Junker's Barn Bash, a Junk Hippy after-party of sorts....family friendly, with live music from our friends Eddie and the Eat, food trucks, dancing, twinkle lights, and all your favorite friends letting their hair down for one night! Think Junk Gypsy prom, Oklahoma style. It's a time to celebrate life, listen to some good music, maybe teach your kids how to two-step. We will have beer stands and food trucks within the arena, and the best part is....tickets to the Barn Bash are only $10! Kids 13 and under are free!
Admission to shop at Junk Hippy is only $5 at the gate, or you can purchase wristbands in advance and skip the line! You can purchase wristbands to shop and also Barn Bash tickets on our website under the SHOP page.
