Cosplay Beach Party 2021

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.

Michigan Medieval Stroll 2021

Save the date so that you can spend a weekend with friends and family in a truly unique medieval faire.

Watch the Knights of the New Order joust and fight so that one can be crowned champion of the realm.

See Medieval Reenactors demonstrate armed combat and watch Blacksmiths forge unique pieces of hardware out of iron.

Stroll through the shops to see the vendors’ wares and take in all types of great entertainment and storytelling.

Actually try your hand in the games, throwing a Viking Ax or see how you would fair as a medieval archer.

And enjoy a Royal Feast in the Canterbury Feasting Halls & much much more!!!
