ReedPOP and Penny Arcade have announced the dates for PAX West 2019 and PAX Unplugged 2019. PAX West will take place August 30 – September 2 at the Washington State Convention Center in Seattle. PAX Unplugged, which will be the 50th PAX convention, has been bumped one week later from last year, running December 6 – 8 at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia.

“When we came up with all this, I don’t think we could ever have imagined putting on 50 of these events and counting,” said Jerry Holkins, co-founder, PAX and Penny Arcade. “We can’t wait to welcome the gaming community to our home in Seattle this summer, and to our Winter Lair in Philadelphia this December. We hope you’ll be able to join us.”

PAX West is the most attended gaming convention on the West Coast. It features an exhibition hall, a competitive PAX Arena, industry panels, autographs signings with streamers, concerts, and other attractions.

The third annual PAX Unplugged convention focuses entirely on tabletop games. For 2019 the convention will expand into a larger expo hall to fit even more board games, card games, and tabletop RPGs. PAX Unplugged also features live shows and panels with designers.

PAX Unplugged 2019 badges will go on sale May 9. PAX West 2019 tickets will go on sale later this month.
