Our event began 10 years ago through a shared passion of gaming amongst a small group of friends in a Cleveland basement.
Today, the Cleveland Gaming Classic has grown into something much larger, but still stays rooted in a passion for everything gaming and more!
And if you haven't been to CGC before, there is something truly for everyone - and it's great for kids!
Whether you're into video games, toys, collectibles, cosplay, competing in tournaments, card games, comics, tabletop games, meeting legendary icons, nostalgia and more - we've got it all.
On Saturday, September 24, 2022, we are thrilled to be moving to our largest venue yet - the I-X Center! This allows us to expand our content greater than ever before.
Additionally, we take great pride in giving back to our community here in Cleveland.
Since 2020 we've raised over $11,000 for United Cerebral Palsy of Greater Cleveland.
