Evergreen State Fairgrounds, Monroe WA
Building 600, The Don Britton Livestock Pavillion
The building where the OLD Oddmall had always been held, Building 400 (“The Commercial Building”) is scheduled for demolition, 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, but if you put in “Western Heritage Center, Monroe WA” it’ll take you right to us. But really, off of Highway 2, just look for the Oddmall signs. If you turn off US Highway 2 at Cascade View Drive? That’s your most direct route.
VENDOR LOAD IN:
FRIDAY 4/29 – 4PM TILL 9PM
SATURDAY 4/30 – 8AM TILL 10AM (SHOW OPENS AT 10 SO HURRY UP!)
Friday night we will have three of the four sides of the building open for you to load in; pull right up and unload, then get out of there so somebody else can unload, please! There are no carts provided by the fairgrounds so bring your own way to get stuff in, and/or be prepared to share with your neighbors because that would be awfully sweet of you! Saturday Morning, we will start off with all doors open but whittle down to just the one main entrance as we get closer to showtime. WE EXPECT EVERYONE TO BE SET-UP AND READY TO GO 20 MINUTES BEFORE SHOWTIME EACH DAY! This gives you time to get some coffee, run get that thing you forgot in your car, use the bathroom, complain to your neighbors about how Captain Slinky is such a jerk for making you show up 20 minutes before showtime… all that important stuff.
One of our lovely Staff Members will direct you where to park your vehicle once you have unloaded. It’s basically all along the northern edge of the fairgrounds where it butts up against Highway 2 – closer than most of the Customer Parking area, AND it leaves the Customer Parking area for, y’know… Customers. We need those!
We have 3 Food Trucks signed up so far – Funnel of Love, Tacos El Montoban and Sharina Beans Coffee. We will try to have their menu options linked off our main SPRUNG website, but no guarantees! They are *technically* not vending for US, they are vending for The Fairgrounds so treat them with respect! They will be set up along the northern side of the building so they can take advantage of the covered picnic table dining area at building 606.
The Gaming Area is located in the main lobby, marked on the map with a friendly yellow rectangle. LOOK HOW HAPPY THAT TRIANGLE IS!!! This area will mainly be reserved for Play Testing, Kickstarter Pimping, Game Company Promoting and Retail Sale-ing. Attendees of the show will be encouraged to cross the Oddmall Sales Floor so they can go play all the new games they bought in our luxurious covered patio Dedicated Free Play Gaming Area.
DEDICATED ASSISTANCE TEXT LINE:
As some of you know, I currently have a condition that makes it difficult and painful to walk. This is GREAT NEWS for all of you. because it means you’ll almost ALWAYS be able to find Captain Slinky right there at the Official Oddmall Information Desk in spaces 8 and 9, right next to the giant door that leads to the Outer Corridor Vendor Area. I’ll also have my weird golden lamps there as well, so that’s a good way to figure it out. If you have any questions or concerns, I’ll be RIGHT THERE to deal with them directly! However, we also have… THE VENDOR ASSISTANCE TEXT LINE!!!
You can send a text at any time to (253) 271-8372 for any of these services!
BOOTH SITTING (Need a break? Let one of our minions watch your stuff for you)
SECURITY (See someone shady or creepy? Send us a text and we’ll send someone official-looking to intervene)
DRINK/SNACK DELIVERY (Need some coffee? Tea? Chips? Whatever you need, our staff can get it for you)
OTHER (I don’t know… what do YOU want one of our minions to do?)
“MASK UP AND WIN” DOOR PRIZE SUPPORT:
For this “SPRUNG” show, we have decided to give out our “Over 100 Door Prizes” to random attendees that choose to wear a mask at the event. Currently there are no mandates that effect Monroe, so to encourage at least a bit of mindfulness we have decided to reward those that choose to Mask Up! Any vendor who would like to “sponsor” a Door Prize may do so by simply dropping off your item with me at the big Captain Slinky booth at the back of the room (the space with all the weird lamps)! Your item should be in a bag (preferably like a lunch sack) with a business card inside so the recipient knows who did it! Contributions should be “Family Friendly”, suitable for all ages please!
VENDOR MAP AND LISTING:
Here you will find a numbered map of the building and an alphabetical list of our vendors, so you can find your space easily. We ended up not putting ANYBODY in the outside covered patio area, so instead there will be picnic tables out there for eating and/or gaming and/or “Taking A Load Off”. Please note that for the sake of alphabetization, we have removed the first “The” of any business name (so “The Captain Slinky’s Weird Lamps” would be under C, for “Captain Slinky’s Weird Lamps”). I also noticed some of you had multiple business names, so check all your possibles before going “But what about MEEEEE?!?” And that brings us to the end of our Vendor Packet. If you have any other questions, you know how to get hold of me 😉
