Vintage Computer Festival West is returning for its 11th iteration this coming weekend (Aug. 6-7, 2016) at the amazing Computer History Museum in Mountain View, California, USA.
Back from a 9-year hiatus, the event is now being organised as part of the non-profit Vintage Computer Federation, a 501(c)3 non-profit educational organisation existing for, and led by, computer history hobbyists. The Federation evolved in autumn 2015 “from the DNA of related groups”.
The festival runs from Saturday, 9:30am-6:00pm, to Sunday, 9:00am-5:30pm.
Hands-on exhibits will be presented on Saturday and Sunday. You’ll find demos of 1960s minicomputers, 1970s homebrew systems, 1980s eight-bitters, and a few oddities. Some exhibits contain pristine original machines, while others focus on unique modern hacks, and everything in between.
Celebration Apple I
CharityBuzz are auctioning what may be the rarest Apple-1 in existence. Come see it at the show!
There will also apparently be an Amiga 1000 with serial number 1 on show!
Vintage Computer Festivals are not flea/swap events, however the organisers are offering a consignment room.
Tickets are available now. To book and for more details of the event including food etc, see the event web page – click on the link below.
