The bazaars started in August of 2023 outside of Paddy's Game Shop with about 20 vendors and continue to see their numbers go up. Bazaar Organizer Becky Jackson says it is a lot of work to set up and they potentially could expand to a two-day event if the growth continues:

"I'm not sure, that's something that we could definitely talk about, you know, I would really love to become a destination event for people and if we can pull that off we'll try it."

Jackson says they plan for 5 or 6 fairs a year but she hopes to be able to have one once a month down the road.

As the fair grows Jackson says they are trying different venues to see how they work and in December they will have a fair at the River's Edge Convention Center in St. Cloud. The next Bizaare Bazaar is scheduled for April 20th at Iron Street Distillery, and then May 4th at Apollo High School again.
