"Now in their twelfth year, the Vintage Computer Festival Midwest will return to Chicago's northwest suburbs to awaken memories of computing's past, returning to 2015's new, larger location, conveniently situated near O'Hare International Airport. VCF Midwest showcases rare artifacts and restored relics as well as the home computers of the 1970s, 80s and 90s along with new gadgets from the hobbyist community that help make them useful even today. Speakers and demonstrations relevant to the industry and the hobby will also be featured in a family-friendly setting of interest to all ages.

Founded in 2005 as a Midwestern offshoot of Silicon Valley's original Vintage Computer Festival (vintage.org), VCF Midwest was originally held in West Lafayette, Indiana and organized by Patrick Finnegan at Purdue University. After four annual shows and a one-year hiatus, the baton was passed to Jason Timmons of Chicago Classic Computing (chiclassiccomp.org) who proposed merging the Festival with an existing gathering of Commodore computer enthusiasts. Six years on, VCF Midwest has propelled both exhibitions to become the largest gathering of vintage technology fans in the region.

The Vintage Computer Festival Midwest is free of charge and open to the public, running September 9th and 10th at the Holiday Inn Elk Grove Village. More information can be found at http://vcfmw.org "
