The annual Seattle Indies Holiday Party - the can't-miss social event of the year for Seattle-based game developers - At GameWorks 12/10/23

Seattle Indies is excited to bring you our ninth annual Holiday Party! Join us for a special night of festive drinks and merry-making with your fellow indie devs to celebrate a successful 2023, and kick off 2024! Come help Seattle Indies raise money to support our ever growing list of community events in the upcoming year.

This is taking place at GameWorks in downtown Seattle, where we have reserved the entire large venue filled with videogame machines, all of which will be unlocked for this event.

Open Cocktail Bar

We'll be providing beer, wine, and cocktails! Be sure to bring your photo ID.

Dinner Buffet

An all-you-can-eat Latin Buffet, Pizza & Pasta Bar, and Deserts Bar. Vegan and gluten-free options will be available.

Unlimited Gaming

Your ticket includes unlimited access to every arcade game GameWorks has to offer in their huge collection. Prize tickets and prize redemption will not be available for this event.

Photo Booth

This year we'll have an automated photo booth where you can create your own digital keepsakes.

Dress To Impress (Optional)

Use this occasion as an excuse to dress up as fancy as you've secretly longed to! You can come dressed for a Seattle cocktail party, or wear an ugly sweater. Do anything to get into the spirit!
