What is a LAN Party?
A LAN party is a weekend long PC (and console) gaming event. We start by setting up rows of tables and chairs and then run tons of power and networking connections. Attendees bring their own computers (BYOC) and attach them to our networks so they can play games with all other attendees all weekend long (3 days straight!). We get sponsors to donate tons of prizes and swag, then we hold tournaments and raffles to give it all to you! In short, it’s a LOT of fun!
Is there an AGE limit?
No. This is a family friendly event all ages are welcome. If you are under the age of 14 you must have a guardian present with you.
What games are played at the LAN?
Everything! If there’s no torunaments going on that you want to participate in, you’re free to play whatever you want. While single player games are technically allowed, the point of a LAN party is to play games with everyone around you! We highly encourage everyone to check out the discord channel to find other people that want to play the same game as you during the event.
Will games have tournaments?
Yes. The current tournament list is shown above on the event page. The list is subject to change via time and game depending on the amount of interest we get for each game. See something we missed? Let us know! If you have a game you are wanting to put in the tournament you can do so if you like as long as you can “host” the tournament yourself and have at least 8 people or teams of whatever the game requires. We can find you a great prize as well for the game you want to host as a winning prize. Speak to staff about it if interested.
What should I bring to a LAN party?
- Computer (desktop or laptop) Or console
- Mouse Pad
- Headset (No speakers please)
- Ethernet Cable – At least 25ft long
- Your video games PRE-INSTALLED
- We try to cache as many steam games as possible, but there may be a LOT of people using the internet, so downloading speeds may be slow. Always try to pre-install as much as you can prior to coming.
Is my stuff going to be safe if I leave it unattended?
We have staff at lanfest always monitoring entryway and will be at the event at all hours of the event. We also have amazing security with Gamezenter monitoring 24.7 with the venue as well.
Can I bring my own chair?
YES!! You’re allowed to bring your own desk chair, and if not no worries we have you covered with chairs that the venue provides free of charge of course.
Is there food on site?
Yes. There is a full kitchen with menu within the venue. Not to mention many other places to get take out at a certain time through door dash etc.
Can we bring alcohol?
No but alcohol is served from the kitchen at the venue. We just ask to not bring in your own alcohol inside the event. Please drink responsibly, thank you.
Is the parking close to transport my “BYOC” gear?
Yes! It is quite close more information about parking coming soon!
Can we sleep at the venue?
As of right now no but a couple years down the road we are hoping to have access to be able to have our attendees sleep at the venue. We do have access to the venue throughout all night Friday and Saturday though we just ask not to sleep at your computer and we encourage you to find hotels near by the event.
