PAX East 2017 Party List

PAX East 2017 Party List

It’s that time again! Here’s our awesome list of PAX East 2017 Parties and events this week! As you can guess, this list will be ever-changing and we’ll do our best to keep it as up-to-date as possible. You’ll see our friends at SideQuesting doing the same on their own PAX East Party Page, and we want to give our thanks to the Facebook PAX East Parties group for keeping us updated as well!

Over the years, we’ve seen meetups/parties which range from WarGaming, TinyBuild, Twitch, to even the Pokecrawl, and more. These are all great events/parties to take part in and if this happens to be your first time going to PAX, try to check them out or hang with your friends or others you happen to meet at PAX. You’ll be sure to see this page being updated with the details on who is running the event, where it may be and how you can obtain access.
