The Great Lakes Comic Convention, or GLCC, is a comic book, toy, and collectible event that runs annually in the Metro-Detroit Area (Michigan). The goals of GLCC are to provide not only a venue for collectors, dealers, and fans to get together, but also an opportunity for people to meet/greet industry talent and guests – many of whom have not been to the Metro-Detroit Area for years. We try to achieve this while showing a support for children’s literacy, as well as other child-related charities.
No Special Guests! Just a fun day with a focus on comic books, toys, and kids!
$3 General Admission
11AM to 4PM
$5 Early Bird Admission
with an Early Bird Only Raffle @10:45AM!
Tickets are only sold at the door on the date of the event!
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.

Most of you know what this is all about, but let us give you a recap for the newcomers!
We are hosting a Cosplay beach/pool-themed party with grill/picnic food, drinks, music/dance/rave parties featuring various DJs throughout the day, volleyball, photoshoots, watermelon smashing (スイカ割り) and many more WEEB activities!
BYOB for alcohol, and shouldbe kept in the shelter/picnic area.
HARD LIQUOR IS NOT PERMITTED by the Metropark.
Since there will be consumption of alcohol, 18+ is the recommended age of the party. However, it is a public park so anyone of all ages are allowed to attend.
Minor attendees should notify their parents/guardian that the environment will include alcoholic beverages present, but we do not encourage underage drinking.
Cosplay is an expensive hobby.
With all the cosplay conventions we go to, the cosplays we buy or build and buy supply/material for, can rack up 💰💰💰 quick.
So we want to hold a FREE ADMISSION event (with an exception of $10 metropark entry per vehicle) where cosplayers can still do what they love, but not worry about spending a large sum of money to attend events.
Comic and popular arts convention to be held August 13-15, 2021, at the DeltaPlex in Grand Rapids.
Join us for year four of Dokidokon!
