Ignite Emporium is an annual event held by Ignite Church in Oakdale. We strive to bring together a free event for local artists, bakers, small business owners, entrepreneurs, etc. to showcase the gifts they have been blessed with, while fundraising for a way to bless our community. Our fundraising is done with vendor discretion proceeds - if you want to give anything from 0-100% proceeds - great, if not - that's ok too! What we fundraise for changes yearly, this year we are hoping to purchase movie tickets at the theatre our church is located in until the money runs out as a small reminder to people of God's love, and possibly saving some for future service projects. You do not have to attend Ignite Church, or any church for that matter, to partcipate - all are welcome and there is no charge to vendors! (To note if food is to be sold it should be premade (items such as baked goods, etc as we will not have areas for food vendors other than pre-made foods). Also to note - we will only be having one table of particular products - such as only one vendor selling Norwex, one selling beautycounter, etc. - we will email you if you register and somebody is already selling this product to put you as a back up if you wish.

Where can I contact the organizer with any questions?
You can also request to be part of our Facebook group, where we will post updates and answer questions.
What time should I be there?
We would prefer you were at Ignite between 8-830am to get set up. We will host the emporium from 9am-10am, then we have church service 10am-11am (you are welcome to but not required to attend), and then we will continue the show for approximately 30 minutes after service ends.
I don't go to church, can I still be a vendor?
Absolutely, all are welcome!
Do I need to bring my own display?
Vendors will be responsible for bringing their own display. We would prefer you bring your own table as our extra table supply is limited, but if you do need a table let us know by November 6th and we will make sure to have one for you.
How does the fundraising part work?
Ignite likes to use this event as a way to fundraise to be put to use in blessing our community of Oakdale. We have a few ways we raise money at this event - free will donation, raffle drawings, and vendor proceed donations. Vendor proceed donations are not required, and if the vendor does decide to donate a portion of their proceeds how much they want to donate (0-100%) is completely up to them. This year, we are hoping to use the money raised to pay for movie tickets at the theatre we hold Ignite at until the money runs out, as a way to share God's love.
What kind of vendors will be at this event?
All kinds! We are hoping to have have people who are artists (various medias - photography, painting, drawing, etc.), bakers, and business professionals (ex: cleaning services, Norwex, music lessons, etc.). No age restrictions.
