VCF East 7.0 Coming in May

April 25th, 2011 by Benj Edwards

VCF East 4.0It’s just about that time of year again. Vintage Computer Festival East is coming to a New Jersey near you. Evan Koblentz, who organizes the show, wanted me to remind VC&G readers that the seventh annual incarnation of the show will taking place on May 14-15 in Wall, NJ. Here are more details pulled from the VCF website:

The 7th annual Vintage Computer Festival East will be held on Saturday, May 14th and Sunday, May 15th, at the InfoAge Science Center at Wall, New Jersey. The event is sponsored by MARCH and VintageTech.

The doors open at 10:00am each day. Speakers begin at 10:15am and end at 2:00pm. The Exhibit and Marketplace open at 2:00pm. VCF runs to 7:00pm Saturday and 5:00pm Sunday.

VCF is (mostly) indoors and is held rain or shine. Admission is $10 for one day, $15 for both days, and free for ages 17 and younger. Parking is free.

For more details, check out the VCF website.

I attended VCF 9.0 (the original western edition of the show) back in 2006 and had a great time. I’ve never been to a VCF East, but I hear they’re just as fun as the ones they hold in California. If you live on the east coast, this is your best chance to meet and greet with other VC&G-type enthusiasts.

Sadly, I can’t make the show physically this year — I will be attending via time-shifted remote telepresence from my non-mobile command center down in NC. (In other words, I’ll read about it on the web after it happens.)

    Enjoy and have a great time, to everyone who will attend the event. I’m from the other side of the world, so i’ll be joining Benj in the non-mobile command center.

    I’ll be at the VCF East this year. I went back in 2007 and loved it, vowing to return one day. Now that time has come…
