The show will take place on FRIDAY AUGUST 4th and SATURDAY August 5th at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, California.
Please note that this year’s show is Friday and Saturday. There is no event on Sunday for 2023.
The Exhibitor list has been posted and registration is now closed. Amazingly, we have more exhibits than we’ve ever had before!

For those already registered, look for an email containing our standard set of Exhibitor instructions in the coming days.
Our cast of Speakers is absolutely outstanding this year! This will be finalized along with a schedule in the very near future. Thanks to Bil Herd and others we have a packed speaker schedule with tons of exciting talks!
We have a new space for Consignment this year! We’ll have lots more room and a more streamlined system. This will, however, require some extra help from those participating in consignment. The instructions on our page will be updated very soon.
Thank you all for the encouragement and support. This show can’t happen without you all.
VCF West is breaking records for VCFs with more exhibits and more speakers than ever!

Speakers are selected and can be found here. Lee Felsenstein will be there to give a talk about his Pennywhistle along with almost a dozen other speakers. Consignment, as always, will be very active with more space than ever with lots of sellers bringing lots of awesome stuff. If you are interested in consignment, look here.
