Play Fair is a celebration of play and entertainment for all ages. It’s an immersive, experience-rich event for children, parents, families, and teenage and adult fans. With hands-on exhibits, awe-inspiring displays, dozens of toy and entertainment brands, and never-before-seen exclusives, attendees can feel, touch, and take home their favorite toys and games — and be the first to glimpse the toys of tomorrow!

The first two Play Fair editions took place in New York City in 2016 and 2017 completely sold out with over 20,000 attendees! Play Fair NY welcomed brands including Spin Master, LEGO, Nickelodeon, Toys”R”Us, Hasbro, Mattel, Crayola, Cartoon Network, Moose Toys, Marvel, and DC Comics and featured exclusive toys, live stage performances, and appearances by SpongeBob SquarePants, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, PAW Patrol, Peppa Pig, PJ Masks, and much more!

After overwhelming feedback to visit new cities, Play Fair has decided to hit the road and visit Portland, Oregon in 2018 and 2019! Play Fair will be co-located with the already family-friendly Rose City Comic Con, September 7-9, 2018 and September 6-8, 2019 at the Oregon Convention Center. Expect to meet and take photos with some of your child’s favorite characters, partake in fun activities like making slime and playing on an adventure course.

More details on all of the Features coming to Play Fair PDX will announced in the weeks leading up to the show.
