Join us for year four of Dokidokon!
Japanese Animation, Film, and Art eXpo is Grand Rapids’ longest running anime con.
The Magical Realm was just bursting at the seams with fun and laughter, cheers and enjoyment. So much so, that we had tons of it left over. So, the fairies gathered it up to store, and begged us to have at least one more! We have searched our calendars, sourced our dates, and decided to grant the wish of all our fairies and friends who had such an amazing time! We in the Magical Realm are proud to say that we will be hosting another year of faire and festivities. So, we are rounding up our entertainers, merchants, vikings, pirates and more to hoist their flags, raise their swords, and march into another year! We are pleased to invite one and all to come and visit the Magical Realm this year!”
Cadillac Pop Culture Con will be a fun filled event. Highlighting all forms of Popular culture from comic book, Sci-Fi, Horror, and so much more. There will be gaming too. Look out for Magic the Gathering, Warhammer 40k, Dungeons and Dragons, Cards against humanity, Ultimate Werewolf, etc etc.

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