Vintage Computer Festival 2002

The most widely known events of the last few years in the Commodore world have been the Vintage Computer Festival in Silicon Valley, the Lansing (MI) Expo and the Chicago Expo. 

The 2001 festival was cancelled in the aftermath of 911, but VCF 5.0 was held on October 26-27, 2002 at Moffett Field Federal Airbase, Mountain View, California. Attendance was about 300 total for both days. The event featured exhibits, demos, products for sale and early computers large and small on display. Robert Bernardo, who has attended and reported on many of these events, was there and captured the action and the faces on film.
