Just because the vending hall has closed does not mean that the Grand Rapids Comic-Con is over for the evening. Quite the opposite! There will be a plethora of activities at the Grand Rapids Comic-Con after the main hall closes for those who want some late night entertainment. Every activity is part of the admission price, so you don’t need to pay an additional admission charge for any of these after hours events. So plan on sticking around after hours and check out some additional fun!
Experience Grand Rapids will have a booth in the main hallway at the Grand Rapids Comic-Con with maps to the local restaurants, coffee shops, and bars as well as information on other attractions in Grand Rapids, available free of charge. Read more HERE.
