How It All Began

Renton City Retro started in 2014 when some gamers had a gathering and realized there is a demand to buy, sell, and trade video games. Our passionate crew put together a small show in Lake City, WA and drew about 200 attendees. With such rapid growth, we couldn’t hold it at the Lake City Community center anymore. So, we moved to Kent Commons Center and sold over 1000 tickets. With a huge increase in attendees, we knew we had something big. Since then Renton City Retro has become a non-profit and is back for its 7th annual gaming show now located at the Renton Pavilion.
