    Hey silver ballers, the 13th annual Northwest Pinball & Arcade Show takes place June 5-7, 2020 at the Greater Tacoma Convention Center!

    Along the lines of go big or go home, this year we are expanding into the second room and taking over the entire 5th floor of the convention center, so the show will nearly double in size! That means we are looking for more games, more vendors and your ideas on how to fill this space with fun and entertainment. This show draws nearly 5,000 people and we are hoping to greatly expand the number vendors, homebrew games, pinball companies, etc.

    We put on a community-run non-profit show, possibly the one like this in the nation? Everyone that helps put on the show does so as a volunteer.

    Our first planning meeting for this year's show takes place Saturday, February 1st in Redmond, WA at 10am. Interested in getting involved? Message me for more information!

    We are especially looking for ideas for filling the bigger space. We want more games, more vendors but also new fresh ideas. Expand the VR? The DDR? What do you or your kids like best? A bigger homebrew space? A pinball/arcade maker space? Console games? A bigger Kid's Zone? More rare game and whitewoods? More EMs? More chill space? More local arcades represented? Let's make this happen!

    I would love to see the flipperless pinball games from the 1930’s to the wood rails from the 1950’s as well as pinball machines that I’ve never got to played in my life such as Defender, Warlok, Solar Fire, Laser Cue, Pharaoh, Laser Ball, Tri Zone, Time Warp, Pokerino, Millionaire, Bad Cats, Transporter the Rescue, Big Bang Bar, Contact, Disco Fever, Hot Tip, Lucky Seven, World Cup, Magic Girl, etc.

    The first pinball and arcade repair party of the season is now scheduled! It will be Sunday, February 23rd, from 11am - 8pm at Jame's house in Milton. PM me for the address.

    Bring boards, monitors, power supplies and full games to work on! Bring tools and parts and help others! No time like the present to start getting your games in good working order so you can bring them to the Northwest Pinball & Arcade Show this June!!! There will be local experts available for consultation and advice, testing equipment and games to play. If you need help on a specific game or board, post ahead of time about it and we can try to make sure someone is able to test or help you with it.

    Are you interested in being a vendor at this year's Northwest Pinball & Arcade Show? The show is June 5th-7th, 2020

    The show draws nearly 5,000 people over 3 days. The Northwest is home to a huge collector scene, more barcades and games on location than anywhere else in the world, pinball tournaments every night of the week and many of the world's top pinball players. Why? Because pinball is huge here. There is also a lot of tech money, which is why the home/collector market is so big. Lots of people come to our show and they come to buy pinball and arcade games, parts, mods, shirts, etc.

    All booths include power, WiFi, draped tables, chairs, a listing as vendor in program, and promotion on show website and social media. Additional booth options may be purchased through the show from the venue. Booth prices:

    Size Cost 3-Day Passes Included
    10' x 10' $200 2 included
    10' x 20' $400 3 included
    10' x 30' $600 4 included

    Interested in vending? Reserve a booth today. We are expanding our space to the entire 5th floor of the Tacoma Convention Center this year so booth space not quite as limited in past years, but we expect it to sell out by the end of March. Contact Jeff at [email protected]

    Great repair party on Sunday, big thanks to James for hosting! It was cold, but we worked on a bunch of pins and a few arcade monitors and fixed a few games and got some other projects moving along. It's always fun to throw down on Jame's killer collection too.
