Blood Bash 2021

Blood Bash 2021 is coming to the Commonwealth Commerce Center on February 6th, 2021!

VENDOR ROOM:
The vendor room will be THE PLACE to be again! Last year we had over 40 tables of vendors selling horror merch, and 2021 promises to bring back amazing vendors selling anything from prints to shirts to baby toes in a bottle – – – yep, if it’s gore or horror you may find these things and more!

HORROR FILM FESTIVAL:
There will once again be an International Horror Film Festival and we will be awarding awards for:
Best In Show (Short)
Favorite Male Performance
Favorite Female Performance
and maybe a few new awards as well?

CARNIVAL GAMES:
The carnival games will be returning! That’s right, kids! You will once again be able to play some of your favorite and most twisted carnival games at Blood Bash, and as always they will be free! We will see the return of the games from 2020/2019 and maybe even have some new games to play!

COSPLAY AND SCREAM QUEEN CONTESTS:
Rumor has it that these will be moved up and take place during the regular convention hours in an effort to get the most cosplayers possible to be in them! 2020 saw a TON of amazing cosplays that weren’t around for the actual contest and we’re taking that issue head on in 2021! More on this to follow.

HORROR VIDEO GAME AND TABLETOP GAMES:
You know these will be back! Play some tabletop games, win tickets! Beat certain challenges on games like Castlevania or Zombies Ate My Neighbors – win tickets!

Cherry Capital Comic Con 2020

C4 is Northern Michigan’s largest comic book and pop entertainment expo. Located at the scenic Grand Traverse Resort, C4 is Northern Michigan’s perfect gathering of comic book creators, exhibitors, and fans. Cherry Capital Comic Con (C4) is a comic book convention that celebrates the medium of comics, rather than a specific genre. At C4, all comics are equal, as are their creators and their fans. The organizers of C4 intend to prove to the world that comic conventions – just like comic fans and the comics, themselves – don’t have to be “this” or “that”. They can just be what they are…which is simply “cool”. Connect with your favorite creators at a variety of panels. Meet up and coming talent in Artist’s Alley. Find great deals on comics and collectable merchandise at our gathering of exhibitors. Participate in our costume contest, with categories for both adults and children.
