Event Description

Pittsburgh Retro Gaming Convention is organized by the awesome individuals who bring you Mega Cat Studios and the crew who founded the Pittsburgh Retro Gaming community. Our shared goal is to connect gamers from all walks of life to come together under a united front – retro gaming! Pittsburgh Retro Gaming Convention is a place for gaming enthusiasts to share their passion for playing and collecting their favorite games. This event is hosted annually to help raise funds for the Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh and the Children's Miracle Network.

We love to re-experience our favorite games. We are fueled by nostalgia, and driven crazy by cartridges. There will be plenty of opportunities to play, compete, imagine, create, learn, and connect with your favorite games. Who knows, you may even meet a new long-term gaming buddy!

Retro video games are our passion.  To us, they represent a time when our childhood fantasies first came through our television screens. We remember a time when game designers’ sun was rising. The games they created were truly challenging, fun, inventive and made for everyone to enjoy. Let us cultivate this nostalgic atmosphere, and create a community to celebrate our memories.

The Pittsburgh Retro Gaming Convention taps into one of the city’s most crucial and abundant resources– academia! From video game, geek culture and anime clubs to computer science and engineering; we have your group covered. After all, video games are an amalgamation of everything these groups represent. Bring your group closer together with discounted ticket prices. Your passes give you a whole day of retro gaming fun!

Our schedule of events is growing daily! Get ready for a full weekend, jam-packed with vendors, retro gaming contests, speaker panels, and LIVE MUSIC! This year will boast many benefits of our growth. PRGC hosts the largest game focused vendor floor in the region and it just keeps growing! Our game play area is also growing and will be bigger than ever. Check out scores Indie developers displaying new home-brew development for legacy consoles, that breathe new life into your favorite classics. The fun doesn't end there either! We are proud to announce this year will see the return of a multitude of different speaker panels and last but not least we have booked multiple gamercentric bands for your listening enjoyment!
