Performances/Events

This is a current list of the performancers, performance times, and steampunk events in Grand Rapids during Artprize. Cirque A Circa (the entertainment group, not the Artprize entry) is currently helping to promote a number of happenings outside of our own entry, a (previously) huge Artprize entry which had to be downsized this to a parking lot mural at the Grand Rapids Press lot, for cost-of insurance reasons. As a result, we have had to scramble to ensure that bands, acts, and visitors could still get much of what we put together, though sadly outside of our own entry.

This schedule will be rebuilt as event times and locations are re-established. Please stay tuned for Cirque A Circa related events an other steampunk, sideshow, and neovictorian events in the area.

Also – please visit our friends, The Steam Pig Project, who have been very helpful and supportive of our cause, and we are happy to return the favor to our friendly and gracious competitors – and to make this a great spot for steampunks/neovictorians and art lovers in general from all over the state to converge on during these weekends.

Please note that these performers and times may be subject to change or cancellations, but this is what we have so far…
