Where:

Kings Market Center, 1425 Market Blvd., Suite 200, Roswell, GA, 30076 (Google map)

What:

Exhibits (and exhibit registration) — Exhibits are presented Saturday and Sunday.   You’ll find computers from the 60’s, 70’s, 80’s and 90’s.  From PDPs to Commodores to Apples… Some exhibits contain pristine original machines, others painstakingly restored machines and others focus on unique modern hacks.  You’ll find all this and everything in between.

Hands On Activities  — We offer a chance to let your inner engineer out.   A very popular feature of our Festival is the chance to create your own electronic device.   We have kits available for purchase (for everyone from complete beginner to those already handy with a soldering iron).

Speakers — Come hear first-hand accounts of events in computer history and informative technical presentations.

Our speakers this year include Jerry Manock (regarded as the “father” of the Apple Industrial Design Group)  and Bil Herd(a former Commodore engineer who created several designs including the Commodore 128, the successor to the Commodore 64) . Check the Speakers link above for the full schedule.

Consignment — We offer a consignment area as part of our show.   We’ll try our best to sell your vintage computer related  items. Details are on the Consignment link.  Please  remember this isn’t a flea market.

Vendors — We invite folks who might have items that would be of interest to our audience to exhibit at our show as well.    Register using the exhibits link.

Concessions — We offer a concession area where you can get soft drinks, water, popcorn, etc. We also have Festival T-Shirts (and a few from previous years) along with some other computer related items.  Click the link for a more detailed list.
