MGC is a trade show for all ages, and kids 9 and under are free! Sunday, April 5 is Family Day, with special activities geared toward the young and young-at-heart!

 
[Please note: We do our best to keep the show a family friendly event, however aspects of gaming history may be offensive to some parents. The MGC does our best to place these items in locations easily avoidable for families, however these games are historical and an important aspect of gaming to represent. We request that parents stay with their children, and avoid exhibits or displays which they feel are inappropriate for their children.]
