LI Retro’s marketplace provides gamers an endless amount of take-home gaming experiences from both local and national vendors.  Curated to ensure the best possible experience for attendees, LI Retro’s vendor hall will host a plethora of sellers across a variety of products ranging from retro resellers, modders, authors, artists, hobby enthusiasts, and more – all in the realm of the gaming culture.

Bring an Arcade or Pinball Machine

Thank you for wanting to contribute to our yearly celebration of classic gaming! Everyone who brings an arcade machine is eligible for up to two weekend passes per machine. Pinball machines are eligible for a payment of $350/per machine.  You can also label your machine as for sale and it can be removed by a buyer at the end of one of the days.
