Windy City LAN is a group of casual gamers from all over the Chicagoland area. We are a (BYOC) “Bring your own computer” gaming community that have been throwing LAN Parties since 2003.  We have traveled near and far attending other LAN Parties out of state in different cities.  Recently have we started opening our doors to a larger events. We made our mark in the community in December of 2015 with a better than expected turnout! Each year as a growing community and we are continuing to learn what works and what does not.  As LAN party events start to make their come back around the United States, we are bringing the LAN Party experience to the Chicagoland area. Our events have brought gamers from the local area, surrounding states, and from across the country.   We are striving to be one of the greatest LAN Parties in the Midwest under the LANFest name. We are here to have fun, bring people together, network, play games and make new friends, and just all out have a good time! One of our main goals is to raise money for charity. Each of our events we work on raising money for a local charity.
