PDXLAN is a mega-LAN Party event in Portland, Oregon where PC gamers from around North America bring their computers to play video games with one another for four days while raising money for charity. Our goals are best described in our tag line: “Have fun, Frag hard, Give back.”
PDXLAN hosts two events per year that consist of more than 1,000 gamers from North America. These events happen in Fall and Spring. PDXLAN’s events are four days long, host multiple contests, tournaments, presentations, and raffles. PDXLAN’s community is best described as a room filled with casual gamers, computer modders, and hardware enthusiasts. PDXLAN events have a very busy schedule with something for everyone, or attendees can just game with their friends. PDXLAN events tend to give away about $150,000 in PC hardware & game prizes. Tickets for PDXLAN events always go on sale at the opposite main event (Fall tickets go on sale at the Spring event, and Spring tickets go on sale at the Fall event). Be ready, tickets sell very fast! Check out an attendee-made video of an event here.
