Long Island Retro Gaming Expo

August 10-11, 2019

at the Cradle of Aviation Museum

The Long Island Retro Gaming Expo is Long Island’s premier gaming convention. The Expo was founded in 2015 with one simple idea – to make a convention that everyone involved in running it would want to go to. This single rule has rocketed the show from our very humble beginnings in a single room in year one to a multi-day show with over 3000 attendees and over 100,000 square feet in 2017!

There is no secret to our success, the Expo is just a lot of fun –  for the people who run it, the people who vend at it and especially the people who attend it! Get ready to play all your retro favorites, browse gaming vendors, participate in panel discussions, listen to awesome music performances, bring your best cosplay, and enter tournaments and win prizes! Oh, and be prepared to have the best time you will ever have.
