Event SPRING PLAY: Boston Game Expo!

Video games are taking over South Boston’s Waterfront in District Hall for an all-out Expo celebrating local developers! Join us for a day of games, friends, and fun. All ages are welcome. We hope you can join us!

Game developers will be showing off their latest games one-on-one to a crowd of up to 1000 people. For developers, this is a great opportunity to show off their games (finished or unfinished) and get direct feedback from players. For everyone else, it’s a unique opportunity to try out the biggest collection of games made in and around Boston all in one place. More games being added daily.


For Attendees:

You must purchase tickets on Eventbrite. Please include your first and last name when you do. Your name must be on the list to get past building security. If you’re purchasing multiple tickets, make sure you enter a name for each ticket when prompted.

**Please be aware that all guests will be required to show a photo ID(s) matching the name(s) on their reservation. We aim to create an inclusive and supportive community and will gladly print you a badge with your preferred name. Email bos@playcrafting.com if you have any questions or concerns.**
