The Continuum

The Continuum is a celebration of science-fiction, fantasy, hard science, music, gaming, animation, film and cosplay.

The Continuum is not your typical convention! We stand out with our well-supplied Convention Hospitality Suite, a Saturday Night Costume Ball, a merchandise area with a wide variety of offerings, several tracks of programming of interest to members and a loyal following of staff and panel participants. Our programming includes literature/sci-fi/fantasy, science/space, music and gaming. There is always something of interest to everyone going on! We also have a video room that screens rare anime and fan-created offerings not seen elsewhere. For NaNoWriMo participants, we offer prep workshops and panels focused on writing.

At The Continuum, you can have the type of day where you attend a tea tasting and history lesson before learning to swordfight, take a breather in a panel where your favorite author discusses world building, then end the day by painting miniatures and listening to someone sing about Star Wars.

Seventh Annual ArtPrize Furmeet

A West Michigan Furry tradition is back for its seventh year! We’ll be taking downtown Grand Rapids by storm to celebrate ArtPrize in our own unique way, all while giving other people an awesome (if somewhat surreal) experience.

Accommodations are available for out of town guests for $50 per person. If you’re interested in staying overnight, please contact the event host.

This is a two-day meet, so feel free to come one day or both days. Fursuiting is highly encouraged, though it may be subject to weather conditions. Ears, tails, badges and other furry gear are also encouraged.

Sixth Annual ArtPrize Fur Meet

It’s that time of year- ArtPrize! Once again we will be walking through downtown Grand Rapids to check out the artwork as well as mingle with the visitors (who probably don’t see giant walking stuffed animals on the street every day).

Accommodations are available for out-of-town guests at a cost of $50 per person. We will also make a food stop midway through the meet, so be sure to have money for that as well.

We will be meeting at the picnic shelter in front of the Gerald R. Ford Presidential Museum on both Saturday and Sunday. On Saturday we’ll meet at 10 am and start walking at 11 am, while on Sunday we’ll meet at 11 am and start walking at 11:30 am.

Fursuiting is highly encouraged, though it may be subject to weather conditions. Ears, tails, badge and other furry gear are also encouraged.
