Pillage The Village at The Mid-Michigan Renaissance Festival 2019

Pillage the Village
How about Pirates and Vikings and Wenches… OH MY… Join us land lubbers in our Tavern for a mead, visit a real life Viking Village and see their daily life. The pint sized pirates can sink a ship or talk to a mermaid. Join this mid-season scallywag shindig with both our sea weathered buccaneers and the fresh faced privateers. Let’s avoid the scurvy, and hard tack! Only the best, or worst depending on your perspective, is allowed in our village!

Superior Con 2019

Superior Con is a free pop culture convention hosted by an alliance of student organizations at Northern Michigan University! If you like video games, cosplay, cartoons, comics, anime, or any other form of pop-culture art, Superior Con is the place you want to be! Superior Con ran for the first time in 2018, and was a great success. Our growth will be slow, but your organizers will strive every year to make Superior Con the best it can be. As of now, this event is headed by Northern Michigan University’s student organization, Cosplayers Unite. As long as the event is hosted on the campus of NMU, it will remain a free event. Our hopes are that one day, Superior Con will grow enough to move up to a larger venue.​
