A stone’s throw from San Antonio’s lively River Walk, PAX South kicks off 2020 with a rootin’-tootin’ weekend-long gaming fiesta. Attendees have the year’s first opportunity to saddle up with the most exciting upcoming projects from major publishers and independent studios. There are also chances to watch thrilling esports competitions in the PAX Arena, including Stream Stars, where fan favorites from the worlds of YouTube and Twitch face off in an epic tournament. 

PAX South, the most-attended gaming event in the Southern United States, also hosts an amazing array of panels featuring new game reveals, entertaining discussions with popular personalities, live shows featuring thePenny Arcade crew, concerts, and more. The full event schedule and list of exhibitors are currently in the works and coming soon. Three-day badges for PAX South can be wrangled for $95. Meanwhile, individual badges for Friday, Saturday, and Sunday will go for $45 apiece. Sunday is a great day to bring the whole family, as special Sunday badges for buckaroos ages 12 and younger can be acquired for only $10. Badges to hitch a desktop in the Bring Your Own Computer section are available for $40. 

A collection of exclusive show merchandise, featuring a new 2020 PAX University theme, will go on sale when badges become available for purchase on Aug. 1. The pre-sale items include a PAX South 2020 long-sleeve t-shirt for $30, tin lunch box for $20, and spinning crest keychain for $15. Merchandise orders will be delivered approximately two weeks before the show. 

“PAX South is when we kick off another year of shows, we love visiting San Antonio because nobody can agree on where the best taco place is, or the barbecue, so some days you eat lunch three or four times. Get your badges when they go on sale August 1st, and we’ll see you there. Also, Tacos N Salsa has the best tacos. They have a taco called the “Trash Can” and it seems like that wouldn’t be good but it is very good.” 

Jerry Holkins, co-founder, Penny Arcade.

PAX events connect the industry’s greatest creative minds from across the worlds of both video and tabletop gaming, directly to passionate audiences. Working journalists and content creators interested in attending PAX South in order to produce show coverage can apply for media credentials beginning in October.
