West Michigan Steampunk Meetup

In costume is encouraged. With the Motor City Steampunk Symposium coming up and several members probably intending to go I thought it would be a good time to have a meet up. This is open to all members not just those going to the symposium. If we get a large enough group present we could discuss the possibility of making a regular meet and greet event at random places in Grand Rapids. Right now the bar doesn’t know we are coming, but since it is on a Sunday how crowded could they be?

Pre-Dokidokon Cookout and Cosplay Meetup

This is a ‘Bring your Own Beverage’ event (No alcohol is allowed on park property) and Cosplay is encouraged, but not required! It’s summer so make sure to take this into thought if coming in costume 🙂

Beautiful Milham Park is a historic 49-acre park that has the Portage Creek running through it, crossed by three different bridges, and hundreds of mature shade trees. It is a popular destination for family picnics and other gatherings.

There is a large picnic shelter with electricity and a seating capacity of 144 people, which is something Dokidokon has rented for this event! The park also has four different playgrounds which are located throughout the park offering different levels of play for children.
