Capital City Comic Con 2018

Capital City Comic Con is greater Lansing’s first comic convention, committed to providing the best exhibition of Comics, Collectibles & Creators in Greater Lansing & providing support for our Community Fully knowing the power comics have to ignite a hunger for reading, we have endeavored to support the pervasive issue of illiteracy in Greater Lansing by partnering with The Reading People at the Capital Area Literacy Coalition, a nonprofit organization that has helped children and adults in the capital area and throughout the state of Michigan learn to read, write and speak English with an ultimate goal of helping individuals achieve self-sufficiency for more than 30 years. In addition, we’re proud to have established the Capital City Comic Con Original Art Scholarship in Comic Studies in 2016. The scholarship is offered exclusively to current students at Michigan State University to encourage the study of comic art. We look forward to hosting an amazing event in 2018, making a significant impact in our community, and continuing to grow Greater Lansing’s own Capital City Comic Con.

Grand Rapids Mini Maker Faire 2018

Maker Faire combines the traditional science fair with innovation and engineering capitalizing on the Maker movement for something entirely new. Featuring both established and emerging local “makers,” the Grand Rapids Mini Maker Faire is a family-friendly celebration featuring rockets and robots, DIY science and technology, urban farming and sustainability, alternative energy, unique hand-made crafts, local food, and more!

Part science fair, part county fair, and part something entirely new, Maker Faire is an all-ages gathering of tech enthusiasts, crafters, educators, tinkerers, hobbyists, engineers, science clubs, authors, artists, students, and commercial exhibitors. All of these “makers” come to Maker Faire to show what they have made and to share what they have learned.
