And to compliment the entertainment stages, The Evergreen State College Alumni Association hosts what has become a very popular venue, the "Greener Oasis" beer garden located outdoor on the first floor of the College Activities Building. A fundraiser for the association to provide student scholarships, their private label wine is also featured.

And don't forget the great food - with more than 25 food vendors with flavors from around the world.

The Klingons are back! Worlds collide again as a delegation of Klingons, of Star Trek fame, visit Super Saturday once again. The IKV T'Mar are a group of science fiction fans dedicated to bring a positive presence though volunteer service and fundraising. The Kilngons will perform their huge sword demonstrations, Klingon drumming, and cause good natured trouble.
