The BIG PAX East 2023 Party List: The ultimate guide to all the parties, events, and meetups

Oh My Gosh — it’s PAX time already!

It’s been a long, long year, but PAX East is back! The 2023 edition of our favorite gaming expo is nearly upon us. March 2023 may seem a ways away, but time moves quickly these days! And we want to get you ready for what’s to come — namely, parties, meetups, concerts AND GAMES.

Oh, and a LOT of great, cool, fun people!

And so, our dear party people, we’ve begun our now ANNUAL and FAMOUS tradition of preparing the ULTIMATE list of things to do after the PAX floor closes. Last year was surprisingly packed, but this year is ALREADY looking to be bigger. So, sit back, ponder over this TRULY MAGNIFICENT LIST, and plan out your adventures. And remember: SHARING (this list) IS CARING!

PAX East 2023 — Here we come!

WE’LL BE UPDATING THIS LIST AS EVENTS ARE ANNOUNCED. So come back and check it out. DAILY.
