We are currently accepting vendor applications for the Grand Rapids Comic-Con, which will be held on November 8-10, 2019, at the DeVos Place in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Our last show had over 29,000 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.  There is a 3% charge for paying via PayPal/credit card.

The following is a map of what has been sold so far, updated as of February 5:

No extra fees with paying with a  check or money order; the contract will be considered complete when the paperwork and money is paid in full and no booth space will be assigned until both are completed.

Once your space is paid in full you will be passed on to our vending coordinator Jennifer Hodges and she will assign your space. Jennifer will also be your contact for items such as logistics, questions, and unusual requests. You may contact her at vending@grcomiccon.com.
