Support Odd Salon

Help us Keep the Story Machine in Motion

Odd Salon is an independent, community based project dedicated to bringing together curious minds in the pursuit of stories from history’s odd an overlooked corners, to the joys of research, and the craft of storytelling.

Since 2014, Odd Salon has been a bringing history’s great untold stories to the live stage. Together, as a fellowship of storytellers we’ve uncovered legends of lost cities and masters of art forgery, engineering failures and murderous sideshow performers, daring heists, questionable taxidermy, and tales of epic revenge – but there are so many stories we’ve yet to tell.

HELP US SUPPORT OUR COMMUNITY OF STORYTELLERS AND GIVE THEM THE TOOLS AND THE STAGE TO FIND THE NEXT GREAT STRANGE TALE.
