The sixth annual Vintage Computer Festival East will be held September 12-13 at the InfoAge Science Center in Wall, New Jersey.

VCF is a public event celebrating the history of computers from the 1940s – 1980s.  Each day’s morning events include lectures and workshops, while the afternoons offer an open exhibit hall where classic computers are up and running for you to see and use. Among this year’s event highlights are a keynote address by Ted Hurewitz about RCA computers in the 1950s; an 8-bit musical concert; a BASIC programming challenge; and Vince Briel’s PockeTerm terminal-building workshop. A two-minute video montage of last year’s event showcases the hardware, software, and folks that make VCF great:

Tickets are $10 for one day or $15 for both days; attendees 17 and younger get in free. The event benefits the InfoAge Science Center, which is a 501(c)(3) non-profit.
