It’s an undeniable fact that over the past decade, comic book culture has exploded on a huge scale. No longer the fringe domain of the uncool, “nerd” culture has gone completely mainstream with the colossal success of blockbuster movies like The Avengers and award-winning TV series like The Walking Dead. 

Halloween Haunts, Hangs and Happenings

Written by Eric Mitts | Thursday, 27 September 2018 15:33 |

Halloween has become more than just a time for tricks and treats. It’s the end of a season, when autumn leaves give way to the ominous chill of brisk winter air lurking around the corner — we’ve found it’s the perfect time to get freaked, freak out others and otherwise embrace your inner freak. In the spirit of the season, we’ve compiled a quick list of some of the most scream-worthy scares and other fiendishly fun events held in honor of All Hallow’s Eve. 

One of West Michigan’s most iconic haunted attractions, The Haunt, returns this year with a new location, new owners and new standards. 

What started as a cheeky Instagram photo has turned into a large casting call for all badass babes. If you’re not on board, kindly move out of the way. 

ArtPrize is celebrating its 10th birthday by collecting stories from its past and planning changes for its future. Kevin Buist, ArtPrize’s artistic director, talked with Revue about what we can expect for this year’s festival as well as what’s new for ArtPrize, such as the fest’s bi-annual switch and the new Project 1.

West Michigan's 2018 Summer Festival Guide

Early this summer, Downtown Grand Rapids Inc. announced that Movies in the Park would become Movies on Monroe. This sixth season of the free summer film series is taking place at 555 Monroe Ave. NW, located along Monroe just north of the interstate. Previously held at Ah-Nab-Awen Park, the move is part of the city’s acquisition of the sizeable riverfront property. 

Still growing bigger every year, the Audiotree Music Festival will celebrate its fifth year in Kalamazoo by expanding to two full days of live music. 

Founded in 2013, the genre-defying festival has already showcased a diverse range of artists in its short history. This fall, it will feature headlining performances from rising California hip-hop star KYLE (aka SuperDuperKyle) and freewheeling Australian psychedelic rockers King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard

Grand Rapids will bounce to the beat of several of this summer’s hottest DJs and rappers when the brand-new Breakaway Music Festival turns Belknap Park into the largest outdoor concert venue in the city.
