Next VCFe will be VCFe 15.2/CH on Oktober 18th/19th in Winterthur, Swizerland.

The 16th annual European Vintage Computer Festival on May 1st thru 3rd 2015 awaits you!

Our mission is to encourage the preservation of obsolete computer hard- and software of years past, to promote interest in researching and documenting the history of the computer age ... and to have fun playing with old iron.

The Vintage Computer Festival is not only a fixed entry in the Silicon Valley timetable, but it has also become a European event, celebrating our computer heritage.

Let us return to those thrilling days of yesteryear, when geeks were geeks and floppies were really floppy.


And all those who can't stand the time until VCFe, the new VCFe-Shop might offer some materialistic surrogate with all-VCFe-branded warez :).


Special Focus Every year the VCFe is themed on a special focus. This year's focus is:
The East - Anything but Red.

While East German KC-machines may be well known by now, only a few know what rich and colourful range of home and professional computers have been operated behind the iron curtain.

Exhibition

Dozens of old (but still not obsolete) computers to be viewed and touched. No barrier between you and your dreams... (It may be a good idea to ask the exhibitor before dismantling his system :)

Speeches

A series of speeches will be given to describe some systems in detail, discuss classic developments from today's perspective or other topics of interest to collectors.

Flea Market

No system will be ever completely debugged, so we are offering space in the hall to vendors to sell and trade historic gear. Anything is allowed - as long as the item is computer related and more than 10 years old.

Peoples Choice Award and Give Away

All visitors are called to vote for their favorite piece of history and unlike a constitutional poll, you may even win great stuff.

Are you ready for the NERD TRIVIA CHALLENGE?

The Nerd Trivia Challenge is your chance to prove just how much of a geek you really are. You're pitted against two other nerds in a game-show style contest of computer history trivia. If you end up the Alpha Geek, you'll walk away with fame (and a great prize). Think you're up to the challenge? Click here for more information.
