MAGFest started in 2002, originally under the name "Mid-Atlantic Gaming Festival." MAGFest has a volunteer community of over 1300 people, who work alongside a small team of employees to put on the best events ever. MAGFest has exploded in attendance over the last 18 years - we started at 300 attendees in 2002 and had 24,000+ attendees at Super MAGFest 2020.
