WHAT IS “CREEPSMAS”?
Creepsmas is that wonderful, magical period of time that starts at sunrise on November 1st and ends with the Shopping Nightmare known as “Black Friday”, where you’re not quite done with Halloween, but it’s almost time to put up the tree! The “Creepsmas 2” event is our second annual celebration of the wonderous season, and is the perfect compromise where the two Holidays can meet somewhere in the middle! It’s your perfect chance to find those perfect, weird, odd, one-of-a-kind gifts for everyone on your holiday shopping list! With over a HUNDRED different, unique, hand-chosen local artists, crafters and vendors to choose from, you’ll have no problem finding the type of stuff you never even knew you were looking for!
PNW KRAMPUS and his Brats will be in attendance both days starting at Noon, ready for all your Krampusish Creepsmas Family Photo needs! This year, instead of making you wait for images to be uploaded by a professional photographer, we have decided to cut out the middle and get your pictures IMMEDIATELY by taking pictures with the tiny professional photography studio we all keep in our pockets, YOUR VERY OWN CELL PHONE! We will have a Cell Phone Photography Specialist (aka “A Teenager”) ready to assist in getting the perfect picture for you on your very own equipment so you’ll have it RIGHT NOW! Won’t that be nice?
THE SQUATCHO MAN – Part Legendary Cryptid, part 1980’s Professional Wrestler, this local legend will be in attendance courtesy of Retro Emporium Kent and ready to be spotted! Snap a picture of him and post it online with the hashtag “#CREEPSMAS2” for a chance to win a prize pack of retro prizes! More details about our Hashtag Photo Contest coming soon, so keep your eyes peeled!
MONOCULON THE OBSERVER will be crossing over from Dimension 27-A to observe (obviously) and see if our dimension is inhabitable/hospitable to beings from all Level 27 Dimensions. Monoculon swears that this is NOT an intelligence gathering operation for any kind of hostile invasion or anything, and at first I thought that sounded kind of sus but then Monoculon asked me to look into their eye and concentrate and then I heard a loud humming and I got a nosebleed and I don’t know, I mean, Monoculon just seems like somebody we can trust.
I get questions about this all the time, so why not make it part of the website? We will be following any and all State and Local mandates regarding COVID, which could mean that we all have to wear masks at the drop of a hat. I, personally, LOVE the masks and encourage them – allergies are a pain! But as of right now, there are no mandates in place. HOWEVER! Little insider tip for anyone who actually reads this section? You are MUCH more likely to win one of our “Over A Hundred Valuable* Door Prizes” if yoou are wearing a mask than you are to win without one 😉
With over 100 Artists, Crafters and other assorted Oddities, you’ll need this! Use this handy-dandy Map & Vendor Listing to find all your favorites or discover somebody new!
The Captain Slinky Presents Oddmall Emporium of The Weird “Merry Creepsmas” event will be located at The Evergreen State Fairgrounds Building 600 (“The Don Britton Livestock Pavillion”) in Monroe, Washington. The building where the OLD Oddmall had always been held, Building 400 (“The Commercial Building”) is scheduled for demolition before our Oddmall, and I SWEAR I had nothing to do with it! I have an alibi! So anyways, SOMETIMES the Google Maps gives weird directions on how to get to our exact building, so just look for the signs. If you turn off US Highway 2 at Cascade View Drive? That’s your most direct route. But really, just follow the signs and you’ll be good!
We have SO MUCH FREE PARKING!!! There are limited Handicap and Non-Handicap spots near the front of the building, and then an ENTIRE EMPTY RV PARKING LOT that is ready for us to fill! Here we have both a picture of the Cascade View entrance to our Free Parking, as well as a map of the entire fairground for in case you miss the Cascade View Drive turn and end up at the opposite end of the fairgrounds from us!
