The 6th annual Portland Retro Gaming Expo – PRGE will be held Saturday and Sunday, September 24-25, 2011 at the Portland Doubletree Hotel.

Retro Gaming Expo, Inc. is a Portland, Oregon-based 501(c)4 non-profit cooperative organization dedicated to creating awareness of, and appreciation for classic video and arcade games through the presentation of events and conventions that celebrate the historic contribution video games have made and continue to make in popular culture.

This is the second year that the Commodore Computer Club will be an exhibitor and vendor at the Portland Retro Gaming Expo. Our humble little PDX Commodore Users Group is also one of the sponsors of this years event. Pretty cool!

Commodore Computer Club highlights with pictures from last year’s 2010 PRGE:

Like last year we will be showing off working Commodore 64 and VIC-20 computers. It will be really awesome to give Commodore computers the respect and exposure they deserve and to also promote our Commodore Users Group.

At our vendor booth we will be selling various Commodore 64 and VIC-20 game cartridges, Commodore disk software, vintage Commodore magazines, books and of course Commodore hardware including the Amiga and PET computers.

Be sure to stop by our Commodore booth while you’re at the Expo and say “hello”. You’ll be able to play hundreds of classic games like Activision’s Pitfall by David Crane and many others. Come and relive your childhood memories of vintage games, computers and consoles.

Speaking of David Crane, he’ll be one of the guest speakers along with Garry Kitchen at this years Portland Retro Gaming Expo. Both David and Garry are pioneers in the video game and computer industry. You won’t want to miss hearing what they have to say.
