2022 Show News

05/10/2022 - Volunteers needed!  We are looking for volunteers to help with load-in / load-out of the machines. (Load-in happens during Thursday and Friday and load-out is Monday). We are also looking for volunteers for administrative stuff as well (admin setup, help at the front desk, etc., etc.) Donating some of your time could get you free admission to the show! CLICK HERE for more information on how to be a volunteer.

04/01/2022 - Announcement of Show!

We are pleased to tentatively announce the dates for this year's California Extreme Arcade and Pinball Show.  It will be held on July 30-31, 2022, at the Hyatt Regency in Santa Clara, California. Please join us for our 26th show with hundreds of your favorite arcade and pinball games, both past and present, all gathered for another fun-filled weekend of arcade excitement for everyone!  

We are working on this year’s lineup of seminars, guest speakers, and other arcade-themed events that make the show so much fun each year. On that note, we are looking to you (as we have before), the arcade community, for suggestions for topics and speakers.  Is there something you would like to see presented (or even to present yourself)? This is your chance to let us know what you would like to see! Send us an e-mail at info@caextreme.org and let us know. We welcome all suggestions and will consider each one carefully. 

Start making your plans, requesting time off work, making reservations by planes, trains, automobiles, and especially trucks to come out and join us for another crazy, arcade-filled weekend! And be sure to let us know if you're interested in bringing games and/or volunteering to help us out by contacting us at info@caextreme.org.  Both are most welcome (and can be worth free admission and/or other goodies!).  

Thanks to all our previous exhibitors and volunteers. We hope we can count on you again, and if you've never brought games or volunteered before, why not give it a try this year?  Even bringing one or two games is very much appreciated. If you have more games you're considering bringing, contact us for more details.  Sure, it may be a little work, but you may be pleasantly surprised at how much more fun you may have in the end. We promise. 

We will announce when the hotel will be accepting reservations (please don’t contact the hotel as the block is not set up yet) and when show tickets will be on sale.  

IMPORTANT NOTES: 

We want you to be aware of following: 

- State and County guidelines are constantly changing depending on the status of COVID. At this time, we cannot determine what requirements will be in place at the time of the show. This means you may need to be vaccinated or wear masks or follow other requirements. We will let you know more as we get closer to showtime.  

- This also means we may have to move or cancel the show if things get worse, so keep in mind this is a tentative date.
