|Back in 1983, Rainbow, the Color Computer magazine took a road trip from Prospect Kentucky to the windy city of Chicago. For 9 years, Lonnie Falk’s gang made the trek to create the Chicago RainbowFEST and bring 1,000's of CoCo users together in celebration.
After the final RainbowFest in 1991, the Glenside Color Computer user group said that we should have one more FEST so good friends could have one last celebration. So in 1992, the group put on “The "Last" Chicago CoCoFEST!“, sponsored by Dave and Nancy Myers of CoCoPRO! and to everyone's surprise, it was a hit.
What else could the group do but hold another show and call it “The Second Annual "Last" Chicago CoCoFEST!“
So, here we are (more than two decades later) with the 23rd Annual "Last" Chicago CoCoFEST! (With twice the number of shows that Rainbow Magazine did in Chicago.)
Welcome to the computer show that just wouldn't die! And why should it? It’s a celebration!
The dates of the next event are April 26 & 27, 2014. Tickets for this event are $5 per person at the door for the two-day event. Children 12 and younger - free.
