Our event began over 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. 

This September 22 - 24, 2023, we are thrilled to be back at the 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 $13,000 for United Cerebral Palsy of Greater Cleveland. 

We'll see you this September 22 - 24, 2023 at the IX Center for Ohio's largest convention for a weekend of everything gaming and more!
