What will I see, do, and be able to buy at CCAG?
You will see several vendors and many classic computer and video game
collectors. (Many of the vendors are also collectors; their basements
are just overrun!) Also, many of the vendors will be featuring displays
of classic equipment.
You will be able to add many things to your classic computer and gaming
collections for many of the following classic gaming and computer
systems. We can never be exactly sure of what will appear at the show, but
all of the following have made appearances at previous shows:

For more information on what our vendors will be bringing to the
show, you'll want to visit their websites listed in the Current Show News section.
We're sure that if you ask them to bring what you are looking for to the show and they have it, they'll do it! :)
Usually, collectors will show up, take a few of the tables, and set up classic computers and video game consoles
for everyone to play games with and explore without the pressure of buying
I'm just a collector but I have stuff to trade and sell. Can I have
just one table?
Absolutely! You best "Contact us" and tell us you are coming, before we run out of tables.
To check the CURRENT availablity status of the tables, Click the STAR Table Status Link on the left side menu of the main page.
Or go here Current Vender Information, for more information.
What's the current status of CCAG? Has the date moved? Has it
You would be surprised at how often we get this question...
The best way to know the status of the show is to visit our homepage or
join our email list. All critical updates to the show's status are
published in both places.
Is CCAG held on the same day, year after year?
Starting in 2006, that's a "Yes" because we're as tired of the
date hopping as you are. From 2006 until at least 2009, CCAG will
occur on the Saturday of Memorial Day weekend. That means CCAGShow 2017 is on Saturday July 22, 2017. Site permitting, of course.
Why? Because it's convenient for the organizers. :)
Why wasn't there a CCAG 2003?
Unfortunately, CCAG 2003 became another casualty of the
"War on Terrorism" when our fearless leader, Jim Krych was called to active
duty. Logistically and financially, it was impossible to hand the
reigns over to another individual and secure a location in the time we had
I'm visiting from out of town, what's in Cleveland, Ohio, anyway?
You're in for a treat! Cleveland is chock full of stuff to do and see.

has listings for attractions (other than CCAG), entertainment (other than CCAG), visitor
information, area guides, lodging, maps, and much more!
What is a "Chinese Auction?"
Rather than have a drawing for the door prize, we run it as a
Chinese Auction. Upon arriving, all show goers - vendors and attendees
- receive a free allotment of tickets, though you can buy more. You
apportion your tickets among the various items being "auctioned" as door
prizes. When it comes time to draw the winner, all of the tickets
"bid" for a particular door prize are put into a hat and an impartial person
selects the winning ticket at random. A high bid (the purchasing and
allocating of a large number of tickets) thus increases your chance of
winning the door prize but does not guarantee it. Someone who bought
and put in only one ticket still has a chance. (But, not a very
good one. So, buy lots of tickets and support CCAG!)
