Midwest GameFest

Plans are already underway for Midwest GameFest 2017, and we're pretty excited about what we have in store for guests this year: more space, more food options, more types of events! But... we don't have a contracted date just yet due to an issue at our 2017 venue of choice, the fabulous Stoney Creek Hotel and Conference Center in Independence, Missouri.

The Problem

Specifically, a professional sports team has contracted with the hotel for all of their home games this Fall. That's great for the hotel but has played havoc with existing events like ours. Furthermore, it would be easy enough to work around except the team's home game schedule won't be finalized until mid-April. So, we'll be making an official announcement in late April, coinciding with our efforts working at Planet Comicon's tabletop gaming hall. Look for signs there, on this website, and in our social media channels!

Save the Dates

We've had our options narrowed down to the following five four-day weekends this Fall:

  • Oct 12-22
  • Oct 26-29
  • Nov 2-5
  • Nov 9-12
  • Nov 16-19

So pencil us in, and stay tuned for more details in April!
