In 2015 multiple vintage computer user groups, including the Vintage Computer Festival, Mid-Atlantic Retro Computing Hobbyists, and the Vintage Computer Forum, joined forces and became the Vintage Computer Federation. They offer an online discussion forum, events, local user groups, and a bricks-and-mortar museum. As you might imagine, they are also a great resource for film/TV props, media interviews, research projects, data/drive recovery services, patent/prior art projects, and more.
Their Vintage Computer Festivals are held in multiple locations, including:
- VCF Pacific Northwest, March 23rd and 24th, 2019
- VCF Italia, April 27th-28th, 2019
- VCF Southeast, April 27th-28th, 2019
- VCF East, May 3rd-4th-5th, 2019
- VCF West, August 3rd-4th, 2019
Their Pacific Northwest event was held in March, 2019.
