Video games are a large part of retro culture, so Retro Con will once again be including a classic gaming section on the show floor in 2017! The Game Is Afoot Arcade will be back with a wide assortment of arcade cabinets for attendees to play!

  Aside from bringing classic arcade cabinets for attendees to play, they will also be bringing their popular multicade machines which include THOUSANDS of titles for players to choose from! All machines will be set to FREE PLAY!!

 

And if home gaming is more your thing, both The Game Guyz and Extra Life will also be at the show all weekend with a diverse selection of home consoles for attendees to play!

The Game Guyz will be vendors at the show, selling a wide range of video game, board game, and tabletop game products. They will also have costumer Victoria Avalor at their tables all weekend, paying tribute to beloved Star Wars character Princess Leia! 

 

 Extra Life unites thousands of players around the world in a 24 hour gaming marathon to support Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. Since its inception in 2008, Extra Life has raised more than $30 million for local CMN hospitals!

So when you’re all shopped out at the show, drop off those bags at the car and then stop by our arcade corner for some retro gaming action!!

Mark those calendars! Retro Con will be back for its *5th Anniversary* show on October 14th & 15th, 2017! As always, we promise to deliver a large amount of show for a small amount of money (for both attendees AND vendors). No overblown hype, no ego, and no VIP passes. Just a fun, family-friendly atmosphere for everyone!

We’ll once again be at the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center in Oaks, PA. We’ll be in Hall C, giving us 54,000 square feet to fill with over 200 tables of toys and collectibles, plus replica tv/movie cars and props, special guests, video games, panels, costumes, raffles, contests, and much more!
