What:

Speakers — Come hear first-hand accounts of events in computer history and informative technical presentations.  We have again attracted some very interesting speakers this year!

Check the Speakers link above more details.

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.

We will also be having a sneak preview screening and feedback session for an upcoming documentary Love Notes to Newton (click link for a trailer)  This will occur at 3 pm on Saturday.

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).

We also expect to again have a demonstration area put on by the FIRST Robot team  T\ They will be there to talk about their experiences at the FIRST competition as well.

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.
