FAQs

If you're new to our event or think you might have a question someone else has asked before, check here. We'll try to leave out event-specific information from this page. That will probably be on our event info page.

How do I get there?

Here's a google map link. Go there, and then it should be pretty obvious.

What time does the event start?

Our doors open at 12pm. You're welcome to show up earlier, but you'll be standing around awhile.

What do I need to bring?

  • Computer/console
  • Monitor
  • Power cables
  • Headphones
  • Keyboard
  • Mouse
  • Any other gaming peripherals
  • Sleeping gear
  • Phone charger?

What should I NOT bring?

  • Ethernet cords (we have plenty)
  • Power strips (again, they'll be ready and waiting for you)
  • Speakers
  • Anything that's against our rules

What about a chair?

You have 3 options:

  1. Bring your own
  2. Rent one from us ($10, limited availability)
  3. Take one from us (free, but not a very good experience)

How does seat selection work?

Thursday night before the doors open, we do a live stream on our twitch page and arrange all the groups into sections. Its then up to that group to select the seats from their assigned areas. If you are coming with a group of 5 people or more, it's recommended that you create a guild on the lanfest page. This is the best way to ensure you get seats next to the people you're looking for.

Do you have showers during the event?

In short, during the summer: Yes. During the winter: No. The showers are external buildings that get closed and winterized by the fairgrounds. That makes them only available in the summer.

So I sleep AT the event?

You can if you want! We have a designated sleep area. You're welcome to bring your air mattresses, cots, even tents and grab a place to crash. Currently, this sleep area is located directly behind your table. There are also a number of hotels nearby if you need your own space.

What about food?

There's more information on our event info page. But to summarize: you can bring your own food/drinks but cannot have it delivered to the event. There is a concession stand open for lunch/dinner on Friday and Saturday, and open for Breakfast on Sunday. Prices are reasonable.

How good is the internet?
