PAX East 2019 Party List Poster

PRAISE THE SUN

THIS. IS. IT.

PAX East 2019 is just a short time away, yet it feels like 2018, 2017, and heck, even 2012, was just yesterday.

But for now, we look to the future. Look to the sky. Look to the sun and moon and stars and night. Let’s get together, enjoy our days and evenings, make friends, network, and not work.

The BIG PAX East 2019 Party List is back, giving you THE QUINTESSENTIAL GUIDE for all things afterhours at PAX. We’ll be populating this almost hourly, so please check back OFTEN.

Special thanks to everyone in our PAX East Parties group on Facebook, as well as the admins: BeckyJacquiDanBryanna, and Brian!
