Description

Calling All Classic Gamers!

The Retro Game Carnival is a celebration of the video games of yesteryear. From the 1970s to early 2000s, we will explore the arcade, console, and PC games that defined eras gone by. Our game fest will include a pop-up museum, fan-made DIY retro arcade, game tournaments, and workshops.

Young and inspired? Be sure to join us for #ScratchFest 2019 and put your creativity towards building your own retro influenced games.
