What is MAGFest?
Short for "Music And Gaming Festival," MAGFest is a four day-long event dedicated to the appreciation of video game music, gaming of all types, and the gaming community. Community focus, dedication, and education
The event runs 24 hours a day, and offers consoles, arcades, tabletop, LAN, live video game cover bands, chiptunes, vendors, guest speakers, and much much more.
What makes MAGFest unique is that it's a non-profit event run by fans for fans. How did MAGFest start?
There are no corporate sponsors, no over-crowded showfloors, and no top-secret-behind-closed-doors showings.
MAGFest is built from the ground up to focus on community and fan creations, which creates an environment that no other expo or convention can recreate.
MAGFest started in 2002, originally under the name "Mid-Atlantic Gaming Festival."
Its volunteer force has worked tirelessly for over a decade to help it grow and mature to the point its at today. It has exploded in size from its original 300, to 20,000 in 2017, with even more expected for MAGFest 2018.
