About LAN All Night

Welcome to LAN All Night Gaming Festival, the Dallas chapter of the national nonprofit organization, LANFest. At the heart of Dallas, we’re more than just a gaming event; we’re a vibrant celebration of community, charity, and the unifying power of gaming. Our mission is clear: to build healthy communities through gaming.

Gaming Together In Person

In a world where gaming is often seen as a solitary activity, LAN All Night Gaming Festival believes in the power of gaming to bring people together. Gathering to play games in person is like the difference between laughing with friends over a meme versus chuckling alone at your screen; it’s the same laugh, but somehow the first one gives you abs. Let’s face it, playing together in the same room isn’t just about the game; it’s about creating those hilarious, shared memories that you just can’t CTRL+Z.

What to do at LAN All Night Gaming Festival

Our festival is a gamers’ paradise, where enthusiasts from all walks of life come together to celebrate their passion for gaming. Whether you’re a hardcore gamer, a casual player, or somewhere in between, LAN All Night has something for everyone. Here’s a glimpse into the experiences we offer:
