Interested in seeing some of the latest pinball technology and what the resurgence in pinball is all about? Or maybe you're looking to buy a pin or arcade game for your home or office?

The Cleveland Pinball and Arcade Show will be four fun-filled days of pinball machines, arcade games, toys, and all things classic gaming! All of the games present will be set on FREE PLAY for the weekend. There will be 100 pinball machines and 30+ classic arcade games for you to enjoy with your paid admission.

Some game may be available for purchase at the show.

The show will also be hosting an IFPA-backed pinball tournament, which is a great, friendly competition that is open to novice and advanced players alike.

As if that weren’t enough, we will be having guest speakers from your favorite pinball manufacturers, games located in the hallway outside of the general game room will be available 24 hours for hotels guests, a flea market, and much much more!

The show is centrally located at the Holiday Inn in Independence on Rockside (at I-480 and I-77), only miles from downtown Cleveland.

We are also offering a VIP package, which will be limited to 100 people. This package will include passes for the entire weekend, early admission to the show, an official CLEPIN t-shirt, a SWAG BAG, and 9 entry tickets to our IFPA backed pinball tournament!
