Ruthschris-toronto at North Idaho State Fair 2018

This summer we kicked off our first real-world events with the North Idaho State Fair. This was a huge step forward for us as a company. Up until this point, we could only be found online. This fair opened our eyes to how amazing it is to be in-person talking to all of you awesome people! 

We want to thank all of the Idaho Fair staff for making our first event a positive and memorable one. Brittany and Alexia, among many others, really worked with us to make sure everything went as smoothly as possible. We are extremely grateful for this partnership!

Fair Pics

Because it got so crazy busy every day we didn't get as many pictures as we really should have, but we'll definitely get more next time! Here are a few that we did get.

Our First Fair Booth

Bigfoot's First Appearance

Bigfoot didn't get to come out and play as much as he wanted, but he did make a few appearances!

Our North Idaho Contest Winner

One of the most exciting things about our booth was the Bigfoot Plinko game that we had out front. Anyone who signed up for our free giveaway contest was also given a ball to drop in the game.

For this giveaway, we gave the winner their choice of any item on our website for free.

Our daughter looks pretty excited about it, but our contest winner is even more excited! Our winner received five extra entries from the game, which was good for the big win. 

Congratulations to Allison who chose an Around the PNW Hoodie as her prize!

Thank you to everyone who stopped by our booth, and everyone who chose to take part in our giveaway. We ended up with over 1,600 entries! Far more than we could have imagined.

More than anything all of you, the people of the fair, made this the best experience it could have been! We can't wait to do it again next year :)

Our third and final event for 2018 was Valleyfest, an annual event held in Spokane Valley. This was a far cry from the North Idaho and Spokane Interstate fairs in terms of number of people attending, but we were equally well received at this event.

Our second event was crazier than we could have ever imagined. The fantastic reception of our booth and products was amazing. We really enjoy meeting everyone, getting so much great feedback on our designs, and of course....all of the great Bigfoot stories!
