How-To Halloween 2021

How-To Halloween is a family-friendly festival that celebrates creativity, imagination and the innovative spirit by showcasing an exhibit hall packed with theatrical displays, interactive games, unique vendors and amazing entertainment! We ‘Frankenstein’ together the best parts of a Maker Faire, Comic Con, Craft Show, Science Museum, Music Festival and Halloween Carnival to create monstrous fun for everyone. Our mission is to inspire kids and the ‘kids at heart’ to make something spooktacular for the holiday and get excited about the creative process as they explore the many hands-on activities, how-to sessions and immersive experiences.

Cherry Capital Comic Con 2021

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.
