Event Description

PLEASE NOTE: In order to keep things fair, we currently have badge limits in place. You are allowed to purchase up to 4 Badges of each type, per household.  If we determine that you are ordering under different names or multiple addresses, all of your orders will be cancelled immediately.

In 2004, the folks at Penny Arcade decided they wanted a show exclusively for gaming. Sure, comics, anime, and other nerd hobbies were cool, but those activities all had their own what about games? From that idea spawned PAX, a little event based in Seattle, WA. However, it quickly became apparent that demand for such a show was not exclusively limited to the West Coast, and people on the East Coast ALSO liked games.  Thus, in 2010, PAX East was born.

Starting with humble beginnings in the Hynes, PAX East quickly upgraded to the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center (BCEC) the very second year and has since exploded to become the largest PAX of them all. With demand perpetually outpacing supply, 3 days simply isn't enough anymore and with PAX East 2018, we've officially moved to four days, running from Thursday, April 5th to Sunday April 8th.

Whether you'd like to come just to dip your toes into the PAX waters for a day, or you're a grizzled hardcore veteran eager to explore every nook and cranny over all four days, if you love games like we do, we have only two words for you:  Welcome home.

Buy your Tickets before March 9th at 11:59 PM CST to avoid the Will Call line and get them in the mail before PAX East. After February 16th, we will not be able to make edits to your mailing address. Please note that Badges will not begin to mail until March.

Children 6 and under are free with a paid adult. Please be prepared to show proof of age onsite. Strollers are not permitted on the Expo Hall at any time.
