Kick Off October with All Things Odd

On October 2, Oddmall is taking over the boulevard with a block party that celebrates our very own cryptozoological marvel – The Kenmore Grassman!

Oddmall is one of Ohio’s largest and most unique exhibitions of art and artifice, and features hundreds of artists, crafters, entertainers, cosplayers, artisans, and purveyors of games, toys, comics and collectibles.

Part art fair, part craft show, part comic con, part gaming festival, part cosplay extravaganza, part toy show, part antique show, part vintage fashion show, part geeksplosion, part music fest, part magic show, and part various undefinable othernesses – Oddmall is Ohio’s definitive emporium of the weird.

From 11 a.m. until 7 p.m., The Kenmore Boulevard will be lined dozens of vendor booths – both inside and outside – 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 are guaranteed to fascinate even the most jaded of curmudgeons.

Oddmall is FREE and open to everyone, though a $5 donation is suggested. For more information, visit

And be sure join us on October 1, 6-9 p.m. for a very special Oddmall preview during our final Kenmore First Friday of 2021. Our October First Friday will feature vendors, food trucks, and live music from Hey Mavis, Daveferatu & the Highland Squares, Madison Cummins, Samantha Grace, and many more! Don’t forget to stop in the Rialto Theatre for a drink and to test your musical chops at the Akorn Jammers Open Mic with Ralph Obert and friends. RSVP and see the full schedule here.
