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.

Shifted Lands LARP October 2020

For over 20 years Shifted Lands has been providing a fun and exciting gaming environment for people just like you. Whether a cunning rogue, brave warrior, or mystical wizard, SL has unlimited potential to help you become the adventurer of your dreams.

If you have never played a LARP (live-action role-playing game) before, think of a good book you have read. Remember how that one character in the book just seemed to survive it all, against all odds? Remember the character that nearly died while saving the life of 10 others and became the hero? Ever wished you could be in that situation? Now you can! You actually get to become your character, be in a battle, cast the magic, and swing the sword.

Shifted Lands LARP takes place in the fantasy world of Aldretha, which is surrounded by an endless sea of magical mist. For hundreds of years lands have shifted into and out of this mist, and for hundreds of years these lands have brought new allies and enemies, heroes and villains, victories and failures… Now a brave new land has opened its doors and exploration is just over the next hilltop.
