Ways to Support LANFEST


Since 2002, LANFEST has been building healthy communities through gaming events and raising money for local charities across North America.  Each local charity is chosen when our community sees a need in their area, whether this is supporting the National Fallen Firefighter Foundation during the 2020 Colorado wildfires, or Chicago Community COVID-19 Response Fund.  Your donation directly impacts your local community.

Gaming locally, building locally, supporting locally.  Help us continue to build local communities!

Join/Start a Chapter

Do you have a LANFEST chapter in your local community? Find out! If you do, join them! If not, start a new chapter.  Fill out the form and we will reach out to you.

LANFEST currently spans 19 different states, so check to see if there is already a local chapter in your area.  You can join a great group of people that game across all types of gaming platforms: PC, console, VR, mobile and tabletop.
