Winter GameFest XIV - Jan 12-13, 2019


Winter GameFest XIV

A Sixth College Tradition

Winter GameFest is an annual video game and e-sports event organized by UC San Diego's Sixth College Technology Committee. We host several different tournaments accompanied by great music and free play area for all attendees. By facilitating face-to-face gaming, we bring members of the video gaming community together in a celebration of gaming culture and tradition. The first WGF was held in 2005 and had less than 30 attendees. Last year, about 2,000 people attended Winter GameFest. We held 14 tournaments and ample opportunity for drop-in play. Winter GameFest has grown to be one of the largest student-run events on campus, and is a premier competitive video game event in Southern California.

This year, Winter GameFest will be happening on January 12-13, 2019. The event is free to everyone, and we are welcoming to gamers and non-gamers alike!
