May 3, 2024Classic Game Fest 2024 Pass Price Update WHY DID CLASSIC GAME FEST WRISTBAND PRICES GO UP THIS YEAR?? We always do our best to keep costs as low as possible at CGF, but unfortunately, price increases are necessary to keep up with inflation, added staff, and increased venue rental fees/overhead. CGF is now a THREE-DAY EVENT! So, yes, weekend passes now go for $70-$100 each…but please keep in mind that only breaks down to just $23-$33 per day, which is not much higher per day than previous years. If you don’t plan to attend all 3 days, single day passes are the way to go! Similar size events – Large Gaming Conventions, Comic-cons, Professional sports, Live Music concerts, etc. often cost $70-$100 or more – for events lasting only a few hours…this is 3 entire days! CGF wristbands go on sale every year in NOVEMBER at the lowest pricing of the year!! Buy tickets EARLY to save money! Ticket prices go UP every few months until CGF…with highest prices paid at the doors at CGF. if you wait to buy, you pay more.WHAT DO YOU GET WITH THE VIP 3-DAY WEEKEND WRISTBAND?
