Cherry Capital Comic Con 2022

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.

Niles Renaissance Faire 2022

Good morrow, friends, and welcome to the Niles Renaissance Faire!

Leave the modern world behind and take a step back in time to a place where things were more simple. The renaissance era is a time of rebirth after the pesky middle ages. As you walk through our gates be prepared to have your breath taken away as you enter a celebration of the medieval times. As you wander the land you will meet merchants selling their wares and bards will lull you with their musical talents. You may be heckled by our town Fool, or be mesmerized by our mercenaries. You might want to keep an eye open for the jailer who, for a price, will lock up a member of your party! Come prepared to leave with sore sides from laughing, a full stomach and an experience you will never forget.

Join us at the Niles Renaissance Faire, the 3rd weekend in May. Merriment, side-splitting laughter, children’s scavenger hunt and the marketplace are sure to ensure your day is full of delight!

May CARPS 2022

Central Action Role-Playing Society
We are a high-fantasy LARP (Live Action Role-Playing) group that is currently based in Southeast Michigan. You may already be familiar with tabletop role-playing games (RPGs) such as Dungeons and Dragons or White Wolf products. If you are, the difference between an RPG and a LARP is that RPGs consist of half a dozen or so players sitting around a kitchen table with dice and a single Game Master, whereas a LARP is a cross between an elaborate theatre production, live combat, and a hike in the woods. LARPs such as ours have costuming, boffer weapons, and dozens of players whose actions influence not only what you can accomplish but the course of an entire fantasy world. If you aren’t, well, them’s the basics.

Greetings to all new and prospective players! As always, your first event is free, with a free rewrite should you decide you would rather play a different sort of character or have a different set of skills. (You must be 18 to play.)
