    2020 pinball show at the Ann Arbor VFW is Saturday April 25th and Sunday April 26th
    thank you

    Clay's not wasting time....

    #3 1 year ago

    When do the tickets go on sale? I'm ready to reserve.

    #4 1 year ago

    ticket reservations start up on January 1st.

    And Puff yes we have to announce early. I say this every year... we announce before any other show in the April/May time frame for any given year. Yet we always manage to have some other show over-write our dates (and we get blamed for it, even though we announced first.) I'm hoping we've gambled on a date that this won't happen.

    #5 1 year ago

    No Friday next year?

    #6 1 year ago

    The countdown begins.....

    #7 1 year ago

    any fall show this year?

    We just held our 2019 show volunteer Thank You event. A few posed for this picture but too many were out riding mini-bikes on the trails or enjoying Sir Brian's grilling mastery to pose

    Might be on top of PATZ, but I kind of hope it is! I could hit PATZ on Thursday & Friday, then I'm already halfway to the VFW for Saturday. No need to be at PATZ all three days anyway.

    #13 1 year ago
    Quoted from yancy:

    Might be on top of PATZ,...

    PATZ is the weekend before.

    #14 1 year ago

    Is Allentown the week after?

    Quoted from TheLaw:

    PATZ is the weekend before.

    Good deal! I like the back-to-back pinball weekends!

    #26 11 months ago

    I'm in-- but only if I can have the same parking spot as last year JM

    #27 11 months ago

    Literally almost slept on this AGAIN,...NOT TODAY SATAN.
    HAPPY NEW YEAR PINHEADS!

    #28 11 months ago

    In for Saturday.

    #29 11 months ago

    Just got my 2 for Saturday again. So much fun at this show.

    #30 11 months ago

    Note that for 2020, the show is being held only on two days instead of three. With admission limits in place and hence, fewer admission slots available, it is expected to sell out earlier than in prior years.

    #31 11 months ago

    Got 2 reservations for Saturday, no-brainer!

    #32 11 months ago

    Oh hell yes. 100% going to this. Saturday it is!

    #33 11 months ago

    I got my two Reservations! See you there.

    #34 11 months ago

    Ok cool. I got my reservations in for Sat and Sun.

    #35 11 months ago

    do not wait if you want to go... seriously... get a reservation soon...

    #36 11 months ago

    We will NOT be drinking bud light. look forward to the tailgate again this year!!!

    Bummer just found out our league finals are the same weekend. I have to cancel. Maybe next year!

    #42 10 months ago

    FYI
    just i case it is not perfectly clear
    Total ticket cost (for each day) is $50,
    but remember, the balance of the ticket ($40) must be paid at the door upon entrance.
    So in essence you will be charged $10 for each ticket
    when buying online when you are making your ticket reservation,
    actual admission is $40 (cash) upon arrival/entering.
    I suppose this way the VFW avoids having to pay fees (at least lesser fee)
    to paypal and credit card companies. <smart idea>

    Unfortunately I am not likely to be able to attend this year.
    But hope to attend again in 2021, if the VFW and myself are still around.
    Best pinball show out there
    (for playing pinball with actual working games from all eras)
    and definitely worth the money.
    I am sure it will only get better, since I last attended a couple yrs ago.
    Cheers!

    Four tickets for Saturday purchased.

    #45 10 months ago

    I just booked at the Holiday Inn Express for ~$85/night directly on their website. Was some sort of "new years" special and I assume a pretty good deal given the VFW-cited typical rate of $130/night.
