It features hundreds of booths showcasing the works and wonders of an abundance of artists, crafters, entertainers, and purveyors of games, toys, comics, and all things geeky, awesome, amazing, amazingly amazing, and amazingly amazingly amazing. Live entertainment, costume contests, and a variety of interesting diversions fascinate even the most jaded of curmudgeons.
INSIDE AND OUTSIDE! There are vendors, entertainment stages, and other great things to do both INSIDE and OUTSIDE!
It’s the Oddmall Talent Show and everybody is invited to participate!

AXE THROWING! Oh, man! Our new friends from Grab That Axe will be outside with their state-of-the-art axe-throwing trailer. To clarify, the trailer itself does not throw axes. It’s the people in the trailer that throw the axes (at targets, not each other). You could be one of them!
