SAAM Arcade

Saturday, August 3, 11am – Sunday, August 4, 2019, 7pm EDT
It’s a weekend of play as SAAM Arcade takes over the Smithsonian American Art Museum! Independent video game developers will showcase
their games for you to try alongside your favorite console and arcade games. This year’s theme is "Breaking Barriers," highlighting diverse and inclusive games from underrepresented creators who have broken barriers in the game industry and beyond. Don’t miss Tanya DePass’s keynote about the importance of diversity in games on Saturday at 4 p.m. Throughout the weekend, find traditional table-top board games as well as old-fashioned arcade consoles, and an array of workshops and talks.
