We are currently accepting vendor applications for the 2016 version of the Grand Rapids Comic-Con, which will be held on October 21-23, 2015, at the DeVos Place in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Our last show had over 22,500 confirmed people through the turnstiles and we are expecting even more growth this year!

The Grand Rapids Comic-Con is hosted in the heart of West Michigan, one of the most vibrant and economically sound communities in the Midwest. Downtown Grand Rapids is about as exciting as they come, complete with a thriving night life and a wonderful selection of micro breweries and other after-hours facilities. Combined with one of the most prosperous art scenes in the United States, it is no wonder that Lonely Planet listed Grand Rapids as one of the ten best travel destinations in the United States.

Vendors will be assigned space on a first come-first serve basis, and we will consider your application complete when the following is done:

  • We have a copy of the contract in our hands (a pdf is fine); and
  • We have payment in full for the contract.

Here is a map of the layout of the vending area at the Grand Rapids Comic-Con. Map was updated on April 25. Anything blotted out in blue is not available for sale:
