Blood Bash 2023

MeggaXP’s Blood Bash is coming BACK to the Commonwealth Commerce Center on February 11th, 2023 – with a special Film Festival BONUS NIGHT on Friday, February 10th!
Blood Bash 2023 will be our 6th annual International Horror Film Festival & Convention, and will feature horror films from all over the world! Last year, we had 2513 film submissions from 48 countries, of which we narrowed down to 60 films from 19 countries that actually screened at the show! The film festival shows an incredible amount of short films every year, and offers up three main prizes: Best In Show, Favorite Male Performance, and Favorite Female Performance!
But Blood Bash is WAY more than *just* a film festival! We also will have 40+ horror themed vendors in our vendor room selling anything horror related including prints, posters, shirts, paintings, one of a kind clothing and accessories, random oddities, and so much more! If it’s horror, you can find it here!
Still not convinced? Well then, perhaps you’ll be interested in some of the more unique things that we offer at Blood Bash. Things like FREE TO PLAY carnival games that go all day that are all HORROR THEMED. Things like “Feed Me Baby,” Blood Bottle Ring Toss, Our Horror Villain Shooting Gallery, and more! We also offer horror themed trivia challenges as well as video game challenges. Win tickets in ANY of these events and you will be entered in to win one of our GRAND PRIZE RAFFLES! All of our vendors generously donate items to our incredible prize baskets, and this year we will have THREE DIFFERENT prize drawing times. In the past we only did it at the end of the day, but this year we will be drawing prizes at 1:00 PM, 4:00 PM, and 7:00 PM.
If dressing up is your thing, you can participate in our COSPLAY CONTEST and enter to win a trophy as well as CHAMPIONS PASSES to the next year’s show!
Or if you’d rather compete in our SCREAM QUEEN contest, you can give it your all and try to out scream everyone else and also win a trophy and free passes to next year!
Blood Bash has become somewhat of a hidden gem in the Jackson community, and the people that come to this show have a blast! We’re not the biggest or flashiest convention, that’s for sure – and we don’t bring in a ton of horror guests, but we DO offer UNIQUE things to do at our show, and in the end – we want our focus to be on the two most important things – THE VENDORS AND THE MOVIES. So please, come out and support the artists, crafters, authors, and filmmakers that help make this show truly special.

and
Saturday, February 26, 2022

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.

Blood Bash 2022

Blood Bash 2022 is officially scheduled for Saturday, February 12th, 2022! This is the day before Super Bowl Sunday, but you won’t have to wait until the day of the big game to see some amazing entertainment that weekend – as we are once again offering up TWO days of amazing independent horror shorts and bonus movies!
With Blood Bash 2021 being scratched due to COVID, 2022’s edition will contain an entire year of extra eligible films – – – so we’re hoping to show even more movies than ever before!

HORROR FILM FESTIVAL:
There will once again be an International Horror Film Festival and we will be awarding awards for:
Best In Show (Short)
Favorite Male Performance
Favorite Female Performance
and maybe a few new awards as well?
CARNIVAL GAMES:
The carnival games will be returning! That’s right, kids! You will once again be able to play some of your favorite and most twisted carnival games at Blood Bash, and as always they will be free! We will see the return of the games from 2020/2019 and maybe even have some new games to play!
COSPLAY AND SCREAM QUEEN CONTESTS:
Rumor has it that these will be moved up and take place during the regular convention hours in an effort to get the most cosplayers possible to be in them! 2020 saw a TON of amazing cosplays that weren’t around for the actual contest and we’re taking that issue head on in 2022!
HORROR VIDEO GAME AND TABLETOP GAMES:
You know these will be back! Play some tabletop games, win tickets! Beat certain challenges on games like Castlevania or Zombies Ate My Neighbors – win tickets!

February Steampunk Meetup at FBC

It is time once again to get together for some Steampunk fun at the Farmington Brewing Company for an afternoon of good friends, good food, and good libations, all with a Steampunk twist. It has been 2 years since we were able to get together at an indoor setting. We miss getting together, and we hope to see many of you there.
As always Steampunk garb is suggested but never required. Please note that it will be on a Sunday afternoon this month.
